Sustainability DoJo
Scott Seivwright Jo Masraff
Welcome to the "Sustainability Dojo," an exhilarating 180-minute interactive workshop where the dynamic spirit of a coding dojo melds seamlessly with the vital mission of sustainable technology. This unique experience is not confined to programmers and testers alone; it's a call to action for everyone who believes in harnessing the power of technology for environmental and social good. What is a Coding Dojo? A coding dojo is an exciting gathering where programmers come together to improve their skills in a collaborative and fun environment. Think of it as a martial arts dojo, where instead of physical exercises, participants engage in coding challenges. It's a space for learning through doing, making mistakes, and solving problems collectively. In our Sustainability Dojo, we infuse this concept with a green twist! Fun and Engaging Atmosphere: Prepare to dive into a vibrant atmosphere where fun meets purpose. The dojo is an arena of innovation, buzzing with energy, creativity, and a shared passion for sustainable tech solutions. Through interactive exercises, group collaborations, and light-hearted competitions, you'll find yourself not just learning but truly enjoying the process. Hands-On Experience with a Sustainable Focus: This is where the action happens. You'll get your hands on real code, testing and analyzing websites and applications for sustainability. How energy-efficient is your code? Are your digital products accessible and bias-free? By scrutinizing these aspects, you'll gain insights into making tech more eco-friendly and socially responsible. Walk Away with an Action Plan: One of the most exciting parts of this dojo is that you don't just leave with new knowledge; you leave with an actionable plan. We'll guide you through developing strategies to implement sustainable practices in your organization's tech. Whether it’s optimizing code for lower carbon footprints, enhancing accessibility, or ensuring ethical AI use, you’ll have concrete steps to make a difference. Who Should Attend? Our Sustainability Dojo welcomes a diverse group of participants: Software Developers and Testers: Hone your skills in sustainable coding and testing practices. Product Managers: Learn how to integrate sustainability into product life cycles. Tech Enthusiasts and Sustainability Advocates: Merge your passion for tech with sustainable practices. Business Leaders: Understand how sustainable tech practices can benefit your organization. Whether you are a seasoned professional or just starting out, this workshop offers invaluable insights and practical skills. Come join us in this unique dojo experience where you’ll not only learn and have fun but also become a part of a movement towards a more sustainable and responsible tech world. Let's code for a greener future!
