Thatʼs a pretty standard pin header; all pins are at equal distance from each other, which should be 2.54mm (1/10in). I use KiCad for schematics planning, and it even calls it Connector_PinHeader_2.54mm.

Hope that helps.

Iʼm in the middle of learning, too. Started a week or two ago and went through the first 6 chapters of lernu.netʼs course. I also started a course on memorise, but put it down after a few days as it seemed redundant.
