Sustainable Software Blog is a private initiative of computer scientists interested in Sustainable Informatics and Sustainable Development. Some of us are former employees of the research and development project Green Software Engineering (GREENSOFT) of the Trier University of Applied Sciences, location Environmental Campus Birkenfeld, Germany.

Markus Dick graduated in computer sciences (degree: Diplom-Informatiker (FH), equivalent to B.Sc.) at the Trier University of Applied Sciences (Environmental Campus Birkenfeld) (Germany). He received his M.A. in andragogy from the University of Kaiserslautern (Germany) in 2010. From 2009 to 2012 he worked as a research associate in the R&D project “Green Software Engineering”. As part of his work, he has authored a couple of international peer-reviewed conference papers. Since 2012 Markus has worked as a software engineer for a leading european financial information service provider, where he develops web applications for the financial market. His personal research interests are web applications, agile software engineering, and sustainable development.

Eva Kern graduated in computer science and media (degree: M.Sc.) at the Trier University of Applied Sciences (Environmental Campus Birkenfeld) (Germany) in 2013. In her master's thesis, Eva explored “The Role of Digital Media in the Field of Sustainability Informatics”. She received her B.Sc. in computer sciences and media in 2010.
