I am on the software side of things and have, only recently, been trying to get into hardware. I have bought an arduino - ATMEGA 328 and got some examples on
pin 13 working.
Now I wish to connecting the arduino to the breadboard for more complicated stuff. My arduino is bare-pin and therefore I bought some 2-Way M-M headers (in picture 1) as 1-Way were not available and have plugged them into the breadboard and connected the same to the arduino as in picture - 2 using an F-F jumper wire.
I have to use the above set-up as M-F jumper cables are not available in the locality.
Question: Is the above set up safe (won't blow things of)? Also is a difference in FF jumper cables - I have 5-each of black and red colors in a pack of ten do they have different roles?
