Like many others, I have received my Gertboard, and have completed the assembly procedure.
Since this is my first soldering project, I am concerned with the quality of my work. In fact, it is my first electronics project.
I'd like to test each component of the board to eliminate my assembly as a source of failure in future projects, since my lack of experience will make it difficult for me to know if I have code issues, or hardware issues during the early stages of learning to do stuff with the Pi and Gertboard.
Does anyone have a thorough, component by component testing procedure I could follow? Or is there a general set of rules to follow for this type of testing, failing a step-by-step method for this board?
I realize this is not a small request, but I think it's one which will have value for many people.
Thanks for your time.
