ASQF & IREB Roundtable “Software Engineering meets Sustainability”
29.06. | 16:00 - 19:00
IREB and ASQF are inviting you to a joined event about “Software Engineering meets Sustainability”.
When: on 29.06.2023, 16h CET
Format: Online (impuls talk+ panel discussion)
Sustainability is one of the core topics for the coming years. Hardly any other topic (besides AI) is currently receiving so much attention in society. But what does this actually mean for software development? Digital solutions have a great potential to contribute to sustainability goals.
However, this does not happen by itself – but must be actively shaped. To make digital solutions sustainable, we need to raise awareness, sensitize today’s roles, provide techniques and practices, and last but not least, integrate the necessary skills training.
For this reason, IREB and ASQF are conducting an online discussion panel with invited guests to address the issue of sustainability with a focus on digitalization and the necessary changes in the skillset for the software development process.
