Do developers use open source tools?
Can a project sustain itself over time? At first glance, this question may not seem related to environmental sustainability. However, a thriving ecosystem of contributors can help optimize software tools for better performance and efficiency, reducing energy use, something proprietary solutions don’t often take into consideration.
Open source tools can also help keep costs down and improve project speed, flexibility, and agility, not to mention maintain security and quality control on your projects. They can also help lean teams start small and test ideas before scaling, reducing waste.
