Don't know if your board is working properly? To check that your board is properly hooked up, start by connecting your Capacitive Touch Slider and uploading the first example sketch to your microcontroller. Then, when you touch one of the pads, as demonstrated in the GIF, the green interrupt LED in the bottom right corner should turn on each time it senses a touch. (Note, if you have not yet uploaded code, the interrupt LED will turn on when you first connect to your microcontroller. The LED will turn off once you have uploaded the Example 1 code.) The red power LED on the back of the board, you can see its reflection on the table in the GIF, will also be on when the board is properly powered.
