Hi. I'm a total newbie.
I want to place an order for the right bits from the off, and I want to use the Pi Zero Breadboard Case, but from the picture I cannot see how to patch from the GPIO to the breadboard.
Firstly, does the Pi Zero W come with the GPIO pins as shown or does it need a connector soldered into the PI board?
If it comes with the GPIO Pins how are these converted to breadboard style connectors?
In the event that I also want to stack thingy (hat, shield?) on the pins - can that be done too or does the case prevent that expansion.
I know when I get the right bits it will be obvious, but until then . . .
Thanks in advance
RussellA

Nope, you will need to purchase the 40pin header separately. This can be purchased on its own here - https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ra ... o%20header or as part of the Pi Zero W kit here - https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ra ... h=zero%20w

The easiest way to connect from your Pi's GPIO header to the breadboard is by using female to male jumper wires. We have a selection here - https://www.modmypi.com/electronics/jumper-wires

The breadboard case is compatible with the majority of pHATs
