Demystifying Sustainable Software Development with Mikael Vesavuori

Software is becoming a big polluter, as more and more of our daily life becomes digitalized. Regrettably, ”quality” and non-functional requirements like maintainability and performance are not well-understood or addressed in many organizations. Sustainability, being one of these requirements, is perhaps the least comprehended. Because sustainability in software is closely linked to other factors, such as good architecture/design, we need to begin to explore how we can solve several problems with a more holistic design/development approach.

Mikael Vesavuori is Technical Standards Lead at Polestar Digital. In Mikael’s presentation, you will learn how to concretely locate and address issues in sustainable software systems. You will also be introduced to the “green software engineering principles”.
