Wednesday, 07 February 2024

The Raspberry Pi makes an ideal match for the Internet of Things, and this book explains how to use Python to connect to and control external devices with the full current range of Raspberry Pis, including the Pi 5 and the Raspberry Pi Zero 2W using the standard Linux drivers. Throughout this book Harry Fairhead and Mike James take a practical approach to understanding electronic circuits and datasheets and translating this to code, specifically using Python and VS Code.


This second edition has been updated to cover the Pi 5 and also the Pi Zero 2W, which is an ideal candidate for use in IoT projects. It has also been updated to use the latest versions of Pi OS, Bullseye and Bookworm.
