Green software practices can reduce energy consumption in multiple ways from programming and architecture choices to user experience..

Nasscom Technology conference – Green Software Session

Had a great time interacting with live audience and talking about #technology #sustainability and #greensoftware at the Nasscom Annual Technology Conference #NATC.

Technology itself has a carbon footprint and we need to consider sustainability as a first class citizen while designing and delivering software applications.

As software professionals, we all have a role to play to embed energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions to contribute our part towards a greener environment. Start your journey with small changes, small improvements can have a big impact at scale.
