It's now time to test the project. You can upload the code to the Arduino board and open the serial monitor. You should see that the sketch is connected to the Web and uploading data to Xively. You should also see the answer from the server being displayed in the serial monitor, as follows:

Date: Wed, 07 May 2014 08:48:05 GMT
