My raspberry pi is coming soon and I think I would be intrested in having a look at using a breadboard and leds motors etc. Problem is I have literally no idea where to start. I plan to get the sk pang breadboard and cover on Amazon but then what do I do??? What program do I need to use? Language? Does any one have a beginners guide? Thanks and I really appreciate all posts! :D :D

Just search for Respberry Pi on YouTube. There are some good videos that show how to interface to the GPIO pins. You can download all of the code you need and the circuit diagram.

This should be enough to get you going. Once you know what needs to be done, it's all very simple.
