It does have the advantage that really complex stuff is much cheaper than it used to be. The Sonoff S20 is under a tenner and the FTDI adaptor is about 3. You also need the pin-header and female-to-female "Dupont" connector ended wires (or you can just solder flying leads temporarily to the FTDI and Sonoff boards - but buying them will also cost next to nothing).

Have fun, Bob.
