Heart of Clojure 2019 - Chris Adams - What you can do when software is heating the world

You might have heard stories about how bitcoin, or the internet itself, is responsible for an ever-growing share of global carbon emissions.

But did you know that just by switching AWS regions in the US, you can wipe out a huge chunk of the carbon footprint from running your tech infrastructure? Most people don’t, and we need stuff like this to be common knowledge in our industry.

In this talk, you’ll learn about the environmental impact of the digital products and services we build, how to measure it, and how to use skills you already have to make meaningful, measurable improvements to it.

About Chris: Chris Adams is an environmentally focussed tech generalist, spending the last ten years working in tech startups, large companies and government, as a user researcher, product manager, developer, sysadmin and UX-er. Based in Berlin, he currently builds open source tools, and publishes open datasets with the Green Web Foundation, to help others understand and reduce the environmental impact of digital products they build.
