Less than a month has passed since we released Hacking & Making in Minecraft and we’re back again with our seventh Essentials book!
Simple Electronics with GPIO Zero is dedicated to helping you build your own electronics projects in easy steps – everything from push buttons to Raspberry Pi robots, and from laser-powered trip wires to motion-sensing alarms.
The book boasts 12 chapters and 100+ pages of GPIO Zero – but wait, hang on… just download the free PDF and get reading already! If you can’t grab it straight away, here are a few of the chapter highlights:
- Program LED lights
- Add push buttons to your project
- Build a motion-sensing alarm
- Create your own distance rangefinder
- Make a laser-powered tripwire
- Build a Raspberry Pi robot
- Create a motion-sensing alarm
- and much more!
We think our latest Essentials book is a great introduction to using the GPIO pins on your Raspberry Pi and programming them with the fab GPIO Zero Python library. It unlocks a whole new world of potential for your projects and it’s much easier to learn than you might think!
