How does software contribute to climate change and what can you do about it?

You might have heard about how cryptocurrency is responsible for a huge amount of the world's carbon emissions. But did you make the connection that the software we build also has a significant carbon footprint? In fact, the carbon footprint of our industry is the same size as the entire world's aviation industry.

In this talk, you will learn about the environmental impact of software services and products and how you can use your skills (accessibility, caching, cloud regions and load-shifting) to reduce the carbon footprint.
