17 years ago this week I wrote the first lines of code for #QGIS. This week, the *awesome* QGIS team releases 3.6. We’ve come a long way…

Quite the journey, from basically a viewer application to now a full fledged GIS application. I looked back and the first time I mentioned QGIS was for the release of QGIS 0.7 back in 2005. I mention back then that I was impressed how far QGIS had come but almost 15 years later clearly it has come so much farther. I probably wished back in 2005 that QGIS could eventually become my preferred GIS application but today I know I can use it without any problems to accomplish any task I need to with GIS. In fact, I’m downloading 3.6 right now.
Debian/Ubuntu, Mac and Windows packages of new #QGIS release 3.6.0 'Noosa' and 3.4.5 'Madeira' (LTR) ready on https://t.co/yGOw9OeDWA . Fedora RPMs (COPR) were also already updated. Farewell QGIS 2! Enjoy! pic.twitter.com/VOZWWSmcnI
