Meets December 7, 2023.

😻 All our Meets events are nice, interactive and interesting. Our upcoming Meets (Goes) Green will show you what the impact of digital sustainability is, and what we all can do to make things better!

We have two digital sustainability experts speaking at our event. Register your free ticket and spread the love! We open our virtual doors 15 minutes before we start on Thursday, December 7, 2023 at 8 AM PT 🌍 and we’ll finish around 10 AM.

🌉 8 AM — San Francisco (US)
🧗🏽‍♂️ 1 PM — Santiago (CL)
🛩️ 5 PM — Davos (CH)
🌆 7 PM — Doha (QA)


We love it when our speakers do live things: they show how they work — their setup, techniques and shortcuts for getting work done in live interactive sessions. So you can learn from their techniques (and mistakes).

Vitaly, the one who loves ironing, front-end, UX and has tons of crazy ideas.

Building a Greener Web

Climate change is real, but as an individual designer or developer, it's easy to feel (&say) that you have no real impact on the situation. But is that true?

In her talk, Michelle Barker will focus on how and why developers can make a difference, and where we fit in as part of a wider community. After the talk, you will leave feeling empowered rather than just scared!

Reducing Digital Waste

Digital is physical. The Cloud is on the ground in mega data centers. We now need about 100 million servers to store our data. Each server causes 1–2 of CO2 to manufacture, and will end up as e-waste, poisoning the air, water and soil. 90% of the data we create and store is waste.

In this talk, Gerry McGovern will show that we — as digital professionals — can do so much more to clean up our data, and have a direct and positive impact on the environment.
