Let’s be honest, this year wasn’t less cruel than the previous one. The world still suffers from the pandemic impacting people’s health and livelihoods. While we are happy that the year is coming to a close, there is also much to celebrate and be proud of. Since 2014, we have been focused on improving the lives of everyday engineers with free, open-source, and next-generation instruments that enhance professional development productivity. This year is no exception, so we would like to end it with a blog post highlighting the major milestones and achievements of PlatformIO Labs.
