Soldering header pins on a development boards can be a pain. But it doesn't have to be. Here's a little trick I wish someone had shown me earlier. Simply place the headers on a empty breadboard. Then put your development board on the pins. Carefully solder the first and last end of the pin of the header. If you're using an older breadboard you're not concerned with messing up, go ahead and solder the rest of the pins. If not, remove the the board and finish soldering the header on away from the breadboard. This is so much easier than other methods I've tried to used in the past. I hope this makes your soldering experience a little better. Enjoy!
