PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

I have a CY8C24794-24LFXI chip that I plan on reading and writing a program to, and it's not clear to me on how to accomplish that based on what seen from the Cypress product line/

As I understand it, the CY3217-MiniProg1 interfaces with my PC, and it is plugged into a 4 pin header on the CY3214-PSoCEvalUSB PSoC CapSensePLUS. From there I should be able to use the provided software to interface with a CY8C24794-24LFXI PSoC.

What I don't understand is how I connect the PSoC to the development/prototyping board. From the screenshot here, it looks as though there is a PSoC soldered directly onto the development board. What I need to be able to do is to connect a CY8C24794-24LFXI to the MiniProg1, write or read it's data, then disconnect and solder to my PCB. How can I accomplish this? Is there a socket or breakout board I need to use? Is there a socket on the development board I don't know about? I honestly won't need a full prototyping or development kit, I really just need a way to read and write to the chip.

I'd appreciate any insight into how to use these tools, thank you!

In case you want to program, or read flash from CY8C24794-24LFXI , you will need a third party programmer. Alternatively, you can build a board with a Zero Insertion Force Socket and connections to MiniProg1 via a 5-pin connector, and use this to program or read flash before finally soldering the device into the end product.
