I have seen many posts about wiring the hd44780 lcd to a PI - but I am having problems understanding because I am trying to do it without a bread board. So, my first question is... do I need one for this? secondly if its not needed, how do I wire it up?
I'm a total newbie when it comes to electronics, so be kind (I'm trying to make the lcd display a local IP to help my son connect to it, because he doesn't know how to get the ip).
thanks in advance
