In Case of Apocalypse, Open This Arctic Code Vault which is based in Svalbard, Norway; the end of the earth! 😰 ❄️ ⛄️
The GitHub Arctic Code Vault is a data repository preserved in the Arctic World Archive (AWA), a very-long-term archival facility 250 meters deep in the permafrost of an Arctic mountain. The archive is located in a decommissioned coal mine in the Svalbard archipelago, closer to the North Pole than the Arctic Circle. GitHub will capture a snapshot of every active public repository on 02/02/2020 and preserve that data in the Arctic Code Vault.
GitHub will save the data for 1000 years and they are researching to reach 2000 years 🌹
Here is the official trailer of GitHub Arctic Code Vault.
GitHub CEO Nat Friedman went to Svalbard to see the infrastructure himself and the full documentary can be seen here -

They allowed free private repos few months which was awesome! Now they are doing all these!
Seems like GitHub is going insane 😄
