Hi, the Peaceful World
We receive a lot of emails and messages on what will be with PlatformIO Project in the future. We collected all answers in one post.
The war should not affect PlatformIO Project in the future. Yes, PlatformIO is Ukranian Project, and the R&D team is still located in Ukraine (for security reasons we will not go into details about locations). We experience the same problems as other Ukrainians (see https://www.bbc.com/).
Russia has never respected Ukrainians, they killed over 15 million Ukrainians over the last 100 years. See Holodomor - Wikipedia . A huge part of our intelligentsia was killed or deported to the eastern part of Russia into the jails. Russians study absolutely different history in the school, they think that they personally won the WW2. They blame us (Ukrainians) that we fought on the Nazi side. That is not true, Ukraine was a battlefield of WW2, and millions of us died. We are sure the world has finally seen the truth. If this “huge army” can’t occupy Kyiv for 1 day, how did they personally win WW2? They even can’t reach Poland…
Ukraine’s Armed Forces destroyed most of part of Russia’s army. If we talk about “ground”, over 10,000 killed Russian soldiers on March 2, 2022. Ukrainians are very strong, everyone defends each peace of his/her land. But! Russia has scared out of one’s mind and started a brutal war. Instead of fighting with our (Ukrainian) soldiers, they use military bases in Belarus and Russia and Russia bombards chaotically civilians with long-range rockets, a lot of death. As result, it is hard to predict which place is safe in Ukraine now.
PlatformIO is built on decentralized architecture. A lot of services are mirrored to the multiple continents. As result, over 2,000,000 developers are not affected today and even do not know that PlatformIO is Ukranian Project. Thanks for using PlatformIO!
Everything that we need for the future of PlatformIO is immediate termination of this war.
