Welcome to the Washington DC Software Craftsmanship User Group!

This group is for software developers in the Washington DC area that care about the quality of their work and want to practice and improve their programming skills, share what they know and learn new things from others.

 

 

This is a hands-on coding user group with no presentations. Each meeting will be a dojo where we will go through a challenging software craftsmanship exercise that focuses on clean code, test-driven development, design patterns, and refactoring. We will pair up and practice on a kata in order to learn and apply the values, principles, and disciplines of software craftsmanship.

We will generally meet on the last Monday of the Month. Come with your laptop equipped with your favorite programming and automated unit testing environment. Be prepared to pair up, learn, share and have fun!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
