5 years ago I founded PlatformIO to solve the problem of multi-platform development in the embedded systems industry. Our unique philosophy gives embedded developers true freedom – personally decide which operating system, integrated development environment, and hardware to use. No more lock-ins to the specific semiconductor toolchains. One open-source ecosystem – multiple architectures, development platforms, and processor families! At PlatformIO, we believe the embedded systems industry desperately needs reinvention. Not only are the IDEs and tools built with technology from the 1990s, but the complex requirements for embedded engineers. We are using modern technology to re-imagine and re-build core components of embedded infrastructure from the ground up. We’re focusing on improving the lives of everyday engineers with a free, open-source, and next-generation tools for professional development.
RISC-V Summit 2019
I had and opportunity to join RISC-V Summit 2019 in San Jose, California, USA. It was my first public talk, thanks RISC-V Foundation that accepted it. A little bit nervous… hundreds of attendees! Thanks, everyone for the kind words and after-talk questions and discussions. We love your feedback, this is the main moving force of PlatformIO success! 🧡
In the case with a next-generation IDE, I will just quote me:
“There are a lot of questions and there is no single answer for them. The next-generation IDE does not require you to find an answer today if you do not know what will be tomorrow. You need an IDE that will be ready for unpredictable changes in the market, need to be ready when one editor goes into the history and much better replaces it. Yes, it sounds magic but it’s achievable”.
