Today, June 22nd is the Day of Sorrow and Remembrance of Victims of War in Ukraine. We honor those who fought for their native country from 1941-1945 and whose lives were taken in WWII. Now, this day has acquired a double meaning. 80 years later, Ukrainians are forced to bravely stand up to the enemy again. And in this fight, Ukraine needs support.
On June 6-10 the annual WWDC22 was held offline for the first time in the last three years. However, the war did not allow most Ukrainian developers to attend this or other international tech conferences. Instead of advancing the technological world, Ukrainians are forced to defend their country, each on their own front. The symbolic pin from WWDC19 became a reminder of a quiet life and freedom in planning the future.
