Ioannis Kolaxis is a Software Architect at Accenture, focusing on Green Software innovations. He is an inventor, speaker, and author of the Green Software book. He has been previously developing software for Atos, IBM, and Siemens.
Ioannis was a kid in primary school when he first saw the green screen with the blinking cursor of an Amstrad CPC6128. This computer opened a new world to him, a world of continuous exploration and creation through programming.
He invented a novel way of working remotely, having filed five patents for software solutions. He was awarded twice the first prize for coming up with the most innovative ideas at Atos Innovation Week 2020 and 2021.
Ioannis frequently speaks at conferences and meetups, including GOTO Amsterdam 2022, Devoxx Ukraine 2021, and Oracle Code One 2019.
Green Software: Rethinking how to develop software to save our planet
Thought your software applications don't have any impact on the environment? Guess again!
The carbon emissions of software applications exceeded the ones of the aviation industry in 2021. We expect this impact to worsen as technology adoption increases across the world.
How can you build greener software applications?
This session revisits the established development practices, providing practical guidelines that developers and architects can follow to measure and reduce the environmental footprint of software applications.
The focus is on practices requiring a minimal development effort, still providing the maximum savings in carbon emissions. At the same time, most of these practices will help reduce the costs of your cloud applications because they minimize the consumed resources (CPU, memory, storage, network).
It is assumed you are involved in building software applications and aspire to help prevent climate change.
