We all know that climate change is one of the biggest issues we need to tackle. Fortunately, the tech industry has a lot to offer in addressing some of these challenges.
In this episode of CodeStories, we’ll learn more about green software engineering and the climate-focused approach. We will also discuss the recent “Hack the Climate” event; in particular the LandPRO team who created an app to help farmers estimate carbon emissions and mitigate climate change.
