Hello guys, I'm starting to learn Python and found a cheap kit on AliExpress it comes with a Development board, Expansion plate and a case. My question is how do we plug a monitor to setup it initially? Is it even required at all? I'm thinking of getting a SD Card with Armbian and install Python and have some scripts run 24/7. However in case something goes wrong how does one plug a monitor to check what's going on? Thanks.

All boards have microSD since ever ... (IIRC last board that used SD card was the original Banana pi)

BTW. Check PC+ (it has better hw components, eMMC, usable wireless, runs cooler, ...)

If you plan to attach a monitor, grab something else, not Zero. One perhaps, but best is PC+

Python is pre-installed on server image.
If you go for hedless board, you need this https://linux-sunxi.org/UART to check if something went wrong.

Thanks for your help. After checking setup tutorials I've decided a pi zero should be more than enough Just one question does it require a normal SD card or micro + adapter?
