Are some languages ​​greener than others?

<p>The lifecycle of a computer application (expressing needs, specifications, cycle development / qualification, production, end use) is marked by decisions impacting significantly its overall environmental footprint.<br />
<br />
Upstream of the development phase, is the choice of a programming language one of those decisions? In particular, has&nbsp;&nbsp;this choice a quantifiable impact on a software energy consumption?<br />
<br />
We shall answer this last question in the limited context of a case study.</p>
