First update in a LONG time (Spoiler: ROV-Suite updates)

Hey!  It's been a LONG time since my last post (too long for my taste), but I've been pretty busy.  I finished up my freshman year of college well.  I had a great time!  I've also learned a lot about programming and CS in general since the last time I worked on one of my projects so the quality of my work should be increasing.

For this summer, I'm interning at a large software development company in NYC.  I just moved in recently but I've been having a great time so far!  It's very cool to live in a big city and the company's work seems really interesting.

I've also been planning improvements, features and bug fixes for Monterey for months now.  I didn't have time while in school (and I barely have time now that I'm working from 9-5), but I'm trying to get some updates for Monterey pushed out as soon as possible.  The biggest change that I'm currently working on is allowing people to configure their ROV from a simple JSON file and having Monterey's UI and networking code take care of the rest.  See here for more information.

Another big improvement for Monterey that I have planned for this summer is unit testing.  Yes, one of my big goals is get Monterey set up with a unit testing framework.  More on that later!
