How can we as technologists help the environment?

A Very Happy Earth Day, CodeNewbies!

Earth Day is celebrated each year on April 22 as a chance to pause, celebrate the incredible planet we all exist on, and consider what we can do in our respective lanes to help Earth heal from the impacts of human-driven climate change.

This year, we'd love to start a discussion right here on CodeNewbie Community about how coding and software development can drive the change Earth so desperately needs.

We'd love to know...

  • What are some of your favorite examples of software-driven solutions to help our forests, oceans, weather-mapping, etc?
  • Do you have any surprising facts to share about the way software development impacts our energy consumption?
  • Any suggestions to share about how companies and software teams can make sustainability an important part of the way work gets done, products are created, etc?

Feel free to answer one prompt, all three, or weigh in with another relevant thought to share in the comments below!

Happy Earth Day!

P.S. Here are some additional resources we wanted to share about the intersection of technology and the environment:
