What is Software Craftsmanship?

CodeCraft Dunedin is now managed via our meetup.com page!

Software craftsmanship is a term used to describe a certain attitude to the software development process.

There is a google group email list for software craftsmanship which covers people from around the world.

Towards the end of 2009 the people on the list hammered out a manifesto which describes software craftsmanship.

Why would I want to get involved?

  • Getting around like-minded developers
  • Seeing what other people are doing, both the big picture, and techniques
  • Going to the technical seminars to learn and meet people
  • Getting involved with some coding dojos, and learning about test driven development and pair programming
  • Having experienced people to discuss technical issues with
  • Finding a master or mentor to learn from

OK, so now what?

Now that you've decided to take the next step, you should:

  • Join the local email list
  • Post a hello email to the list, and mention what you'd like to get out being involved
  • Come along to the next meeting
