Panel: DevSusOps

Many have called sustainability the challenge of our lifetime. The DevSusOps Panel pulls together expert practitioners at the very forefront of sustainability thought leadership for a practical conversation about what's happening in the space today. The group will explore strategies to measuring, reducing, and preventing the environmental costs associated with the software we produce. Never has it been more important than today to truly grok the strategies and practices available to our companies for reducing and eliminating carbon.
