My first post. I am totally new to ADS-B; just bought a FlightAware USB stick pro and an antenna and want to play around with them.
I am software developer, so would welcome advice for other coders.
Basically, I wan to read the data from my FlightAware, send it my server and place it into a database whence various software which I code can read it, manipulate it, display it, send alerts - the usual stuff.
I would strongly prefer to develop in Windows, falling back to Linux if that won’t work, and, as last choice, the Raspberry Pi (4 or Zero W).
Is it as simple as just opening a serial port and reading? Would I be advised to run dump1090 and process its output?
I am itching to get coding. Any advice on how best to proceed will be gratefully accepted
