Guest blogger Massimo Di Stefano

Over the past few months I’ve been picking away on various hardware projects, particularly configuring my Arduino board as a USB joystick device and fusing in Python code, GPS signals, etc.

During this time I met Massimo Di Stefano (aka epifanio) who is also doing a bunch of neat controller work with ossimPlanet. You may know him from the #osgeo channel in IRC. We both feel we are just playing around in our spare time, but have some common goals. We are both interested in open source, hardware, ossimPlanet, Python, GPS and UAVs.

His work is encouraging for me and I think it is really cool. To help share some of his work, he’ll be blogging on here from time to time (he has his own feed).
