WiFi by USB on Zero Pi ?

Can anyone tell me if there is any way to get WiFi on the Zero Pi by USB or otherwise. If so can they explain How.? I know that there are WiFi Usb dongles on the market but most seem to need to run a a program on a supplied CD and which are aimed at Windows laptop users.

RaspberryPi alternative programming languages

RasperryPi seems to be setup for easy programming development in Python, but other programming languages seem to be have little or no facilities for easy program development. Are there any provisions for C++ or Java program development.?

IR receiver decoding sofware for Pi3

Does anyone know of available IR decoding software for using a !R Receiver 1838 module on a Pi 3. Also which GPIO pins on the Pi 3 that could be capable of decoding the IR received signal.? I have used this module with success on an Arduino Uno and wish to try it on the Pi 3.

Re: IR Detector for pi3

Okay, you want to read an IR remote control signal. Most people would install the LIRC package (sudo apt-get install lirc). If you want a light weight solution you could try my IR Receiver Python module. . I have downloaded the 'lirc' module as you suggested but I cannot see how to use it as there ...
