Jumper wires Step 5 of 15

Cut wire jumpers to size and solder in place. Solid core wire is preferable for stripboard because it is easier to poke through the holes, and the corners can be bent nicely so it lies flat: flat nose jewelry pliers are useful for this. It is helpful to colour code the wires. I suggest using black wire for anything connecting the GND, red wire for connecting to 5V, and yellow or white wire for everything else. Use flush cutters to trim the wires after soldering.
