Green Software Engineering with Agile Methods

"Green Software Engineering with Agile Methods", our latest research paper,  was accepted to be presented at the 2nd International Workshop on Green and Sustainable Software (GREENS 2013).

Below, we give a short summary of our paper accompanied by a link to the PDF of the accepted version.

The GREENS 2013 workshop is held as part of the 35th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013) on May 20, 2013 in San Francisco, CA, USA.

In our paper, we state that the contribution of software to Green IT is still not well investigated today. In our opinion this includes the production and usage effects of software on energy consumption and finally on global warming.

As a viable contribution, we present a software development method that systematically integrates sustainability aspects into software development processes. It uses agile methods while remaining flexible enough to be applied in arbitrary software development processes.

Our showcase of a possible tool support integrates energy efficiency measurements as unit tests into a continuous integration environment that comes along with apropriate reporting capabilities.
