About this video


Developing sustainable Software is a key part of making digitization more sustainable. However, it is not always obvious and easy to see how and where a Software Programm could be made more sustainable. That is why, in this openXchange live talk, Mathias Renner talked about why and how software engineering can be more sustainable, for example by using the GREENSOFT-model. After that, he also looked at the Barriers that developers face during this process. In the discussion we also talked about the impact of using cloud services, the rebound effect and tools to measure energy consumption during the development.
