Software Craftsmanship 2009

I, too, have become involved in Jason Gorman‘s Software Craftsmanship mini-conference. If you’re interested, now is a good time to visit the site and propose a session.

This conference aims to showcase and champion the “hard skills”, and champion the idea of software craftsmanship and the ways in which it can be encouraged and supported in the workplace, in schools and colleges, and among the wider software development community.

Maybe it’s just a hubris, maybe craftsmanship is the wrong word, but we want to promote the idea that skill and experience (i.e. us) are of value in software development.
