Hi Mychaela,

One possibility is to buy eg. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/573 and
solder wires from this socket to the pads on the FCDEV3B, which seems
not too difficult, and thus an interesting possibility for those looking
to acquire a FCDEV3B at reduced price and some small amount of rework.
