The developer’s role in a greener future

Developers can optimize software for Cisco devices to reduce their energy consumption. By writing efficient code, developers can minimize the processing power required to perform tasks, thereby lowering the energy demands of the hardware. This not only prolongs the life of the device but also translates into reduced electricity usage, which is beneficial for both the environment and the end-user’s utility costs.

Organizations like the Green Software Foundation and Open Sustainable Technology share best practices and open-source projects to help developers with their sustainability efforts. Cisco DevNet also has sustainability projects and code posted on DevNet Code Exchange.


Developer Sustainability Week: What to expect

As Earth Day approaches, remember that it’s not just a day but a milestone in environmental awareness that has been acknowledged since 1970. Cisco DevNet invites you to join a series of engaging online events and content throughout the week.

April 22: A new episode of DevOps Shop

(Subscribe to Cisco DevNet on YouTube so you don't miss it!)

Kick off the week by exploring a new episode of DevOps Shop, hosted by Alex Stevenson. In line with Developer Sustainability Week, this episode will focus on how DevOps practitioners can use code optimization, automation, and green coding techniques to help the environment. Tune in on April 22 to watch the premiere on the Cisco DevNet YouTube channel. And in case you miss it, you can always find it on the DevOps Shop playlist. Be on the lookout for even more sustainability-related content throughout the week!

April 23: Energy Management and Sustainability Webinar

(Registration OPEN!)

On Tuesday, April 23, Adrian Iliesiu will host a webinar that explores the vital role of programming in energy management for Cisco Catalyst systems, including SD-WAN and IOS-XE. If you are a developer, network engineer, or sustainability advocate interested in energy efficiency and reducing the ecological footprint of network infrastructures, this free session is for you!

Register here for the free webinar.

April 25: Energy Management and Sustainability Workshop

(Registration OPEN)

On Wednesday, April 25, a hands-on coding workshop, led by Jeremy Cohoe and Story DeWeese, will guide participants through for coding for energy management on Cisco Catalyst products. As a bring-your-own-hardware (BYOH) event, you can apply this learning on your own devices. In this free workshop, you will get experience in coding for energy management on Cisco Catalyst products and learn coding practices that can be immediately applied to your own hardware for instant sustainability gains.

Register here for the free workshop.
