NWO-I DCC supports ethically responsible science. With promoting the broad dissemination of research software and code also comes the responsibility to consider the environmental impact of the usage of software and code. We therefore support green coding, the optimization of software and code for energy efficiency rather than performance or memory usage.
- We organized a mini-symposium to introduce green coding to NWO-I employees and others. Link to slides and notes: https://hackmd.io/@nwo-i-dcc/green-coding/
- We published six recommendations on green coding in ERCIM News, based on the mini-symposium. Read the article here: https://ercim-news.ercim.eu/en131/special/green-coding-reduce-your-carbon-footprint
- We collaborate with SURF and the Netherlands eScience Center to organise a masterclass on energy efficient computing on high performance clusters (HPCs). This course will explore the basics behind energy-efficient computing and some advanced concepts like large-scale application analysis, characterisation and data centre energy footprint calculation. Registration is free of cost, and everybody is welcome to attend. This masterclass takes place on June 15 and 16. Participation can be online or in person at SURF Amsterdam. Note that for the hands-on exercises online support will be limited, so for the best learning experience in person participation is recommended. Registration and more info: https://www.surf.nl/en/agenda/energy-efficient-computing
- organize a workshop on green coding on high performance clusters (HPCs) in the first or second quarter 2023. More info: email@example.com.
- The Green Software Foundation is a great resource for green coding, such as an online tutorial and a catalog for green software patterns (example code for the application of green coding principles).
