Hardware Assembly

If you haven't yet assembled your Qwiic Shield, now would be the time to head on over to that tutorial. With the shield assembled, Sparkfun's new Qwiic environment means that connecting the sensor could not be easier. Just plug one end of the Qwiic cable into the Accelerometer breakout, the other into the Qwiic Shield of your choice and you'll be ready to upload a sketch and figure out how your board is moving around. It seems like it's too easy to use, but that's why we made it that way!
