Do you mind if I ask something about your LCD?

Please do, it isn't in the Parts List
From the photo I can see it is 16 x 2 Characters, 8 x 5 pixels per character...
Does it use the HD44780 chip?

Clean that board before you solder to it!

Hi,
I don't have a lot experience in Soldering.
Would you mind if I ask what do you mean when you say clean that board before soldering?

I'd suggest reading through this, possibly buy a pcb and some LEDs and other various components to practice on.
