Mark Taylor, one of PHP Leeds main organisers, and I met back in autumn 2020 when I did a similar talk to PHP South West. So it was with great pleasure that I gave a slightly revised version of the talk to PHP Leeds.
We had some great chat after the talk and good questions such as:
What’s the single biggest thing I can do as a developer to mitigate my environmental impact?
I said use renewable energy, but honestly I should have said stopping buy so much tech you don’t actually really need. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
What’s the environmental impact of serverless vs traditional server based technologies?
