About the session

Global warming is the most serious threat to humanity, and the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector is a significant contributor to it.

Every year it consumes around 10% of the worldwide electricity, projected to increase up to 20% by 2030; and it's responsible for 2-3% of the total CO2 emissions (currently about the same as the aviation industry), projected to increase to 14% by 2040.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will explore what agile teams can do to help reverse those trends, both by creating greener software that uses less hardware and needs less energy to run, but also by adapting their working practices to use less energy and emit less greenhouse gases during its creation.

Participant takeaways:

  • Creating more efficient software systems by including energy efficiency among the quality requirements.
  • Better prioritisation to avoid implementing and maintaining low-value features.
  • How to sell "green" to all stakeholders.

Themes:
Green software, Sustainability, Agile
