    Ive connected everything according to the tutorial, compiled and uploaded the code... But when . I turn the power on, the LEDs randomly blink and then nothing happens...

    What could be wrong?

      Did you connect the right end of your LED strand to the board? Data should flow in the direction of the arrow; the arrow should point away from the board. The directions are a little confusing.
      If you have soldered the LEDs on backwards, you can cut the strand after the female connector so that that connector stays attached to the board and then plug the connector on the other side of the strand in to it. (and then achieve what the directions were trying to have you do).

    I do not see a price for this kit. Do I just purchase the parts separately or is there really a kit?
