Using open source tools (mainly
gdal/ogr) for research in Remote Sensing and GIScience. Huge GNU/Linux aficionado.
My motivation to participate in this fantastic Q&A adventure of SX is to help others, learn from the experiences of others and improve myself every day by getting input of other experienced coders.
In my early days of coding I was happy to have very patient friends and supervisors guiding me along a path not seldom frustrating. Since I think every one is capable of learning programming as long as he/she is not frightened from the beginning, I want to use this platform to help programming rookies.
