Easily Adding WiFi to a Raspberry Pi Zero @Raspberry_Pi #RaspberryPi
The latest Raspberry Pi Zero W comes with wifi and bluetooth built-in at $10. Which is great because it makes it perfect for IoT projects. But if you had previously bought a bunch of Raspberry Pi Zero or want to keep the new Raspberry Pi Zero projects low cost, you probably will go with the option of adding WiFi easily and cleanly to your existing or new Raspberry Pi Zero boards; without adding much bulk to the compact board.
Pial’s Blog goes into detail on how to do just that without using the Zero’s OTG USB port.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
