251 - Could Green Software Be Part of the Climate Solution?

Wednesday, June 22nd • 9:00am — 9:45am PDT

Breakout Workshop
We’re all aware of the impact of our actions in relation to carbon emission and energy efficiency in our daily lives - and with mindful energy use, reducing that impact through recycling and travel. But what about the software we design and build? Are we really aware of the impact software has on our environment, especially when deployed at scale? There is work being done to help figure out the impact of currently-running software, but ... is there a better way? As many companies shift their focus to sustainability, let's predict and improve our software environmental impact with the help of designers, software engineers, data scientists, and strategists. Join us to learn more about the challenge of carbon reduction through patterns, practices, and collaboration with the Green Software Foundation to improve (a) energy efficiency, (b) hardware efficiency, and (c) carbon awareness.
