The zero would probably work but from a very cursory look, the course appears to be pretty "bare metal". The registers on the zero should be pretty much the same as the "A" but you might find some problems...I don't know for sure. You could come back here and ask for some help with that if you encounter problems. You should realize that the "plain vanilla" zero in the listed Cana kits has no network connectivity included and you would need some kind of USB based wireless or ethernet dongle in addition to a USB based keyboard/mouse so you are going to need the dongle, the keyboard and mouse and a network device and all that will require a USB port expander. You might consider the zero "W" which has on-board wireless (https://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi-zero-wireless.html
), leaving the single USB port free for a combined keyboard/pointing device. At least and in either case, you will need their "Basic Kit" unless you already have a 5 volt power supply with OTG connector and the uSD card. Good Luck.
