A friend gave me a beginner's Arduino kit for Christmas that did a great job at walking me through lots of things to do with LEDs. I really want to get into Arduino so I bought an LCD shield as my next thing to explore. Specifically, I purchased an 'UNO R3 2.8 TFT Touch Screen' from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UAA2XIC?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00 but I cannot for the life of me find any instructions out there. The adafruit libraries don't seem to interact with it but then again I also have no idea where to begin. Instructables doesn't seem to have tutorials for anyone without an electronics background.
Is there anywhere out there / does anybody know of a comprehensive tutorial for how to work with LCD displays? I was a programmer in a previous life but I can't understand electronics data sheets for the life of me. I would really like to find a tutorial that includes the necessary components to purchase since there seems to be a ton of variability in each part.
Thanks for your time!
