In today’s world, sustainability has become a crucial aspect of our lives due to the serious threat posed by climate change. The question arises as to how test automation can contribute to this global challenge. Digital technology utilizes a vast amount of resources. For example, major data centers are one of the biggest culprits of excessive electricity consumption. Every effort to reduce resource consumption and make the world more sustainable is a positive step in the right direction.

An example how Test Automation can play a significant role in achieving this goal is by providing valuable information about the state of the software and its underlying resource usage. Gathering data about the resources used can help in making adjustments to reduce consumption. Another example is using less code which can lead to less usage of CPUs, which ultimately results in lower electricity usage.

To further explore how test automation can contribute to a more sustainable world, we will be hosting an interactive session. The session will begin with a brief elaboration on green software and its principles. This will serve as a starting point for a discussion focused on using challenging statements related to test automation to identify interesting practices that can help us make software greener.

We are excited to have you join us in this effort to create a more sustainable future. Your participation and ideas are crucial to identifying innovative solutions and practices that can contribute to reducing the environmental impact of software development. So, we invite you to join us and help make a positive impact on our planet.

Ard Kramer, Quality Information Consultant, OrangeCrest will host the workshop “Could Test Automation Play a Role in Making Software More Sustainable?” on Thursday May 25. Interested to see more of the program? Visit the program page!
