I am experienced with C# and now I want to start my first microcontroller / electronics project with a gadgeteer board.
The goal of my first project is clear (and seems easy enough):
Switch on and off multiple sets of LED chains from an Ethernet controlled board.
I’d buy something like this to control
Control multi colored LED chains.
I’d buy something like this:
I have no idea about electronics or soldering but I’d like to learn all necessary basics and acquire all physical tools needed.
I guess for turning LED chains on and off I just need a Relay module and for taking over the LED controllers job I need a Breakout TB10 Module, Extender Module or IO60P16 Module.
Measuring the air moisture and temperature in my room while I am at work sounds like fun as well.
Are there any guides for a beginner on my level (I can operate an ammeter) or should I just go ahead, buy the FEZ Raptor R1 Kit and hope that I won’t electrocute myself?
