GreenCoding: the new frontier for software development
Be a step ahead
Sustainable software development, or GreenCoding, can help your organization as it seeks to shrink its environmental footprint. Scaled up to servers and consumer devices worldwide, every line of code has the potential to reduce energy consumption and emissions. How efficient is your code?
GreenCoding starts with three overarching principles: shutting down software when it’s not being used, avoiding processing that’s carried out in real time by default and focusing on the overall lifecycle of software: its creation, use, maintenance and disposal.
Even though a single optimization may have a negligible impact on its own, it can make a difference when combined with many others. GreenCoding involves optimizing visual content and using zero-waste code and low-footprint resources.
Greener methodology and platform
Rapid feedback cycles and reusable output are the keys to greener methodology. And to optimize energy efficiency, the infrastructure that code runs on is as important as the code itself. Learn how utilization, configuration and metrics all play a crucial role.
