A regular Meetup group for software developers who care about and take pride in what they do and how they do it.  Modelled on the London Software Craftsmanship Community, I hope to bring some of their success to the Cambridge software community.

Software Craftsmanship has grown out of Agile, with many of the leading lights in the Craftsmanship movement being the founders of the Agile movement as well.

The Software Craftsmanship Manifesto describes the movement as follows:

As aspiring Software Craftsmen we are raising the bar of professional software development by practicing it and helping others learn the craft. Through this work we have come to value:

      • Not only working software, but also well-crafted software
      • Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value
      • Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals
      • Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships

That is, in pursuit of the items on the left we have found the items on the right to be indispensable.

© 2009, the undersigned.  This statement may be freely copied in any form, but only in its entirety through this notice.

Through this group, I hope to tackle the third point from the manifesto and create and encourage a community of professionals in the Cambridge area.
