Updating the DC measurements
- by Arne Tarara

In my last blog post I have written about how we finally completed the DC measurement reporter for our Green Metrics Tool. In the last days we have looked at reducing the variance of the ATX powerlanes and finding out if swapping out the resistors for more stable current measurement resistors can improve the measurement. [...]

DC energy measurements for software
- by Arne Tarara

We finally got our DC measurement setup ready … sadly around one month later than expected. If you wanna see first results go here: Wordpress sample measurement Stress sample measurement If you wann get the details of our journey, why we are integrating it into our tool, some tech specs and the future outlook on when we have the AC measurement ready, then read on :) [...]

CO2 Formulas and Case Studies
- by Arne Tarara

Starting this month we will be releasing articles in a regular fashion about insights into energy use of specifc software tools or architectures. In order to lay a foundation to follow these articles we have created at a CO2 Formulas page, where you can find all the relevant formulas how to calculate the energy use of software. [...]

Today we have pushed the first beta of our metrics providers for full OS Intel RAPL readings. You can see the full details of our demo runs with the static version of the Green Website Foundation Page in our Green Metrics Tool Measurements Overview [...]

Youtube Extension
- by Alexandre Oliveira

How many times do we use Youtube only to listen to songs, or to watch videos without the necessity of going for that fancy 4k/HD resolution? Also: do we really want to automatically watch other (algorithmically-chosen) videos after the current video is finished? [...]

Change of license
- by Arne Tarara

As some of you following our Green Coding github have maybe noticed is that we have changed the license of some of our repositories. The tools and the demo code where prior licensed under MIT, which is a software license that we have come to love through popular libraries like Ruby on Rails, Bootstrap, Joplin and many more … [...]

FAQ - About Green Coding
