The best software is Green!

At the SAP TechEd 08 conference in Berlin, I had a chance to sit down with SAP’s SDN community evangelist, Craig Cmehil.

We talked about the fact that many coders would consider ‘good code’ to be code which gives maximum functionality in the minimum CPU cycles with the smallest file footprint and minimum memory requirement. Coders even have a derogatory word for inefficient code – they call it bloatware!. In other words, the best code is the most efficient. To me this screams Green!

We talked about this and then got SAP to commit to having their next Hacker night be a Green themed hacker night! Win!
