What you’ll get out of this course

Understand the key factors in sustainability

You will understand the key factors that matter to the sustainability of a system and whether it's likely to survive and thrive or crash and burn in the energy transition.

Understand the pros and cons of operational efficiency vs code efficiency

You'll know where to focus your attention first and why. Running before you can walk is likely to end up giving you a bloody nose.

Understand demand shifting and demand shaping

You will learn where, when, and how to use it and what to do when that demand just won't be shifted.

Understand where your organization sits with respect to green software maturity

The next steps for your systems depend on where they are now and your appetite for leading the pack vs sticking to tried and tested, commodity solutions. By the end of the course, you will understand what tools are out there that you can leverage to deliver on your specific goals
