In the past, few people would have described GRASS GIS as intuitive. Therefore, it was even more surprising when I got this response from beginner students! Come and listen to a presentation talking about the new generation of GRASS GUI. You will be surprised by the intuitive start, convenient data organization, GRASS in dark theme mode, and many other pleasant functions which me and the development team have prepared for you. Stay tuned!

This talk will highlight the major improvements of the GRASS GUI in version 8 which is much more user-friendly to existing users as well as to completely new ones.
