Get up and running quickly with the new Jumpstarting ebook series from Make: . The super-small $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W includes wireless LAN and Bluetooth connectivity and is 40% faster than the original Raspberry Pi.

Why choose the Raspberry Pi Zero W? It's small. It's cheap. It's power-efficient. It has WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) built in. And it has the same general-purpose input/output (GPIO) header that bigger Raspberry Pi models have: the gateway to controlling all sorts of hardware.

Projects include:

  • An environmental monitor that can keep track of the temperature in your house, and even turn on your fan or airconditioner before you get home from work
  • A wearable light string that monitors news feeds and websites to alert you when there's something interesting going on

    This is the perfect book for students, teachers, and hobbyists who want a quick-start guide to the Raspberry Pi Zero W. No prior experience with programable boards is required.
