Hi all! I’m new to this forum and as the first one ever!

Bill does a great job with his videos and new features. I have a few projects I’m trying to get going and I’m looking forward to some forum insights along the way. Thanks!

Hi, I'm a new member to the DroneBot workshop forum.

I was hoping to find a way to upload photos, but that feature doesn't seem to be available to me yet.

How does this work

So IDE, Edit, Copy as HTML, {;} and paste. 

#include <TinyGPS++.h>
/* 
   This sample sketch should be the first you try out when you are testing a TinyGPS++
   (TinyGPSPlus) installation.  In normal use, you feed TinyGPS++ objects characters from
   a serial NMEA GPS device, but this example uses static strings for simplicity.
*/

// A sample NMEA stream.
const char *gpsStream =

It is considered poor judgement to traverse a chasm in 2 leaps.
