(8x8 led matrix ) guidance asked

hey!

I salvaged a 8x8 RGB led display with driver shield and i want to mess around with it but i have no idea on how to program this thing. how do i get started on controling this thing?

can someone guide/teach me?

thanks for any tips in advanced! :)

Pictures of the board with focus on any numbers on the driver chip(s) would be a start. Without knowing the driver chip and communication method there is little help to give. Google the part numbers that you can find and try to find datasheets.

im using this shield: http://store.iteadstudio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=312

and this led matrix: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__37852__Kingduino_Tri_Color_RGB_LED_Dot_Matrix.html
