> Climate change is here and we need to do something about it. Perhaps you’ve heard of actions you can take to help, but as a person in the tech industry, you want to know how to best apply your unique skills and position to the problem. In this talk, I’ll go over specific steps that people and companies in tech can do to help the climate change cause.

"Dan Lew has been an Android developer for the past decade and is currently working at Trello. He had a few big successes on the JavaScript tag on StackOverflow in 2009 but has since forgotten everything he knows about JS. You can catch up with his work at danlew.net or follow him on Twitter (@danlew42)."
