- Deep dive into the components of the small yet powerful Raspberry Pi Zero
- Get into grips with integrating various hardware, programming, and networking concepts with the so-called "cheapest computer"
- Explore the functionalities of this $5 chip through practical recipes
Raspberry Pi Zero, also known as the cheapest computer, is a powerful and revolutionary product developed by Raspberry Pi Foundation. Raspberry Pi Zero opens up a new world for the doers out there. This book will give you expertise with Raspberry Pi Zero, providing all the necessary recipes that will get you up and running.
In this book, you will learn to prepare your own circuits rather than buying the expensive add-ons available on the market. We start by showing you how to set up and manage Pi Zero, then move on to configuring the hardware, running it with Linux, and programming it with Python scripts. Later, we integrate Raspberry Pi Zero with sensors, motors, and other hardware. You will also get hands-on with interesting projects in media center, IoT, and more.
