First board done!

After a bit of soldering practice, I put the arduino breakout board together!

The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Everything went OK, finally plugged in the arduino and the power light came on!

Having no confidence in my soldering skills, I unplugged it and went through every connection with a multimeter (since most are simple arduino pin to screw terminal), and they all seem OK.
I'm pretty impressed with the kits. The PCBs are professional, well marked, and the instructions are unambiguous with plenty of pictures. I'm a bit more confident that I can build the remaining boards now.
