I received my Makerbuino a couple of weeks back and assembled it with almost no issues. My assembly work was good but the speaker was faulty! No problem though as I have some electronic spares and had a suitable speaker to hand.
I’m looking forward to learning to write programmes for it. I’m also into retro computing, I’m a big fan of the old Sinclair ZX Spectrum (I have a Next on order! :D) and have learned many programming languages over the years. I hope to find some “Getting Started” type stuff or “Makerbuino for beginners” though as up to now I haven’t used C.
