Recently, I spoke with Maxie Duda on The Evolution Exchange Podcast about how Software Engineers could do their part on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Green IT, and Sustainable Software Engineering in particular, is a highly fascinating field, and I have just started exploring the possibilities.
Although actually being a serious topic, it was still a lot of fun, thanks to Maxie’s cheerful and kindly manner. Time flew, and it turned out that 45 minutes was by far not enough time to talk about all the stuff I wanted to mention.
If you are interested in it, you’ll find the links below (the talk was in German, though).

Great session, thanks!
Could you please post your source regarding the statement “6-10% worldwide power consumption is IT”?
Thanks for your comment. I checked my notes, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find that particular source yet. A good lesson for me to take better care about my sources in the future!
I’m currently writing an article about the same topic, and will do some more in-depth research about it for sure.
