A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in climate tech: The Building green software with the Software Carbon Intensity Specification free webinar on December 1.
There are two broad ways of looking at software: software as part of the climate problem and software as part of the climate solution.
Building green software and doing it at scale requires the creation of a trusted ecosystem of people, standards, tooling and best practices. The mission of Green Software Foundation is exactly that.
In this talk Sara will cover some of the work the Green Software Foundation is doing and some of the tooling, like the Software Carbon Intensity (SCI) Specification.
The SCI defines a methodology for calculating the rate of carbon emissions for a software system. The purpose is to help users and developers make informed choices about which tools, approaches, architectures, and services they use in the future. It is a score rather than a total; lower numbers are better than higher numbers, and reaching 0 is impossible.
