Big steps forward. Another Tuesday evening Fab Lab session and I managed to solder the pins (bady) onto the VEML6070 UV sensor. Also borrowed a breadboard and some jacks.
Here are the pics of the setup via the breadboard.
Once I figured out how to get the jacks running between the sensor, breadboard and the SENS01 Raspberry Pi it was time to tackle the interface via Terminal. Wow - was that daunting. And I'm still struggling with a couple lines of code. But the learning curve was amazing, and I've begun to get some vague understanding about how the syntax works in Python. So much to learn!
