New firmware, new boards, new controllers

Due to everything that’s going on right now it feels like ancient history the last time I’ve talked about new OpenDeck firmware. Or new boards. Or new controllers. In fact, I think the past few months have been the busiest months for OpenDeck ever since the project started. If you’re interested on what’s going on […]
