To use the example code that the Jarduino uses, you will need a Mega. I do not believe there are enough I/O pins on the Uno for the 3.2" TFT LCD Touchscreen.

As for me, I did not have any experience in coding at all. I started learning C++ last November, and can work my way around the sketches now with fair confidence.
