We've been busy adding talks:
The State of Data Center Energy Use with Anne Currie
Estimates currently place data centres at the same level as aviation in terms of carbon emissions. What can we do about it? This talk takes a look at the simple, pragmatic steps that every developer can take to adopt greener hosting for their applications. Check out the whitepaper and sign the petition for sustainable servers.
What Do People Really Want When It Comes To Sustainability? with Seyi Fabodi
Most presentations share the presenters take on the needs and experiences of the customer, as it relates to sustainability, but very few presentations use actual data from user responses. This talk will be based a “let’s hear it from the users mouth” survey of 5000 users (US based) to determine customer sentiment on the topic of tech/sustainability and what products/services are currently serving the needs identified.
Seyi is a returning speaker: check out his 2017 talk.
Priorities for Green Design with Jeremy Faludi
Jeremy wrote VentureWell’s Tools for Design and Sustainability, the OECD’s recommendations on green 3D printing policy, and co-authored Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute’s design for certification training.

Jack is a software engineer at Automattic and creator of Susty, the theme that delivers WordPress in just 6KB of data transfer. And it’s the theme we’re using for sustainableux.com.
