Green software - building sustainable Python data analytics
Mark Pinkerton

Were you aware that the cloud infrastructure powering modern computing has a larger greenhouse gas footprint than commercial aviation? This talk is aimed at developers and data scientists who are concerned about the impact of their work on the environment and want to explore practical solutions to address this challenge. We will explain how greenhouse gas emissions are categorized and estimated for computing. We will also introduce approaches to developing more sustainable software and provide practical examples using Python data analytics.
