Alpha program running.

I’ve been enjoying learning Python, it’s a powerful language with a huge number of applications. One of the first full programs I wrote was the Logging program which tracks the position of satellites and records the data in an external file at the desired interval.

At the start of a new minute the program records coordinates, prints and exports them into a new or existing CSV (Excel) file. I’m going to add a GUI as well as additional functionality.

I enjoyed writing the program and came up with many innovative solutions to problems.
