Broadcast launch of the project "Server in the clouds"

    We thought for a long time whether it was worth making a separate post for the broadcast, and decided that once more than 450 masters took part in the project, then why not. So, this post is for those who are not alien to the feeling of excitement, and who are ready to watch in real time how close the ball is to the point they put on the map. So, flew!

    A bit of background and useful links for those who missed everything:
