using PI zero GPIO pins

Fri May 20, 2016 8:20 pm

hi,
I am using pi zero for my project.So for that I want to program some of the GPIO pins by application programming.

Now,i want to know two things
1)Befor starting to program the GPIO pins i want to know it's default status so ,where i can find the default status of GPIO pins for
"pi Zero" module.
2)How to access or program the GPIO pin by "application programming".

Use the resources that you would use for the GPIO pins for any other Pi. The only difference is that you have add the physical header pins yourself on a Pi Zero.

1. Solder the pins on
2. Refer to http://pinout.xyz
3. Try some simple programs using Python and GPIO Zero (also see this resource)
