I bought an Arduino Micro but I'm having trouble finding diagrams of projects set up with it. Does the micro always require soldering or can I put it on a breadboard and connect wires? Sorry for the stupid question.
There are no stupid questions, it's a learning process.
For anyone new and just starting out, you don't need to solder it to use it. Yes, you can just plug it into a breadboard for experimenting and testing. That's how it was designed, to be able to be plugged into a breadboard.
