We talk about low-power computing and retrocomputing here, but has anyone tried to reduce the energy use of code? (Rather than optimizing it for other goals.) Particularly for their day job?
This study shows that energy usage is not the same as speed efficiency or memory efficiency https://thenewstack.io/which-programming-languages-use-the-least-electricity/
https://principles.green/ has a few concrete suggestions for web apps. Which is good to see, because that’s far more complex than some example data processing programs.
