Engineers of all kinds must ensure their work serves the public good. A service that reliably harms, exacerbates injustices, or excludes marginalized groups is not a service worth building and maintaining. Learn how to effectively accomplish change in your working conditions or your employer’s products through grassroots employee advocacy.

There is a reason why the cloud is gaining popularity. On one hand, the software is growing and getting more complex. In contrast, the computing power of a single machine has more or less maxed out. The only way to keep growing is by distributing our software across machines. It is only a matter of time before this requirement starts to affect the databases. For many, it already has.
