my name is Martin Landa. I was introduced to the world of free
software at the university thanks to my supervisor Ales Cepek who also
came with a idea that I could contribute to the GRASS development.
After some GIS courses which I was following at the university I
started within my master thesis project to develop specialized GRASS
module for GNU Gama project. That were my beginnings in 2004. From
that time I am happily using Debian GNU/Linux as my favorite OS and I
feel like free software developer;-) Since 2005 I am mainly involved
in GRASS GIS  development, I am one of the core developers in this
period of GRASS evolution. I am also author of VFK driver for OGR
library. Since 2009 I am working as the assistant professor at the
Czech Technical University. I am using free software GIS applications
within several courses which I am teaching at the university, mainly
"Free Software GIS", "Introducing to geospatial data processing" and
"Remote sensing" course. The last six years I am also organizing
friend-based little conference in Prague focused on development/usage
of GFOSS .
That's me :-) Martin
