Raspberry Pi IoT In Python Using GPIO Zero, 2nd Ed (I/O Press)
Thursday, 22 February 2024

The Raspberry Pi makes an ideal match for the Internet of Things, and the GPIO Zero library is the official way to use Python with the GPIO and other devices. In this book Harry Fairhead and Mike James look at how to use it to interface to fundamental IoT devices – from LEDs and buzzers to servos and stepper motors and several off-the-shelf Raspberry Pi add-ons.


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 cover the latest version of the GPIO Zero library, which is both the library recommended by Raspberry Pi and the only one that works with the Pi 5.
