An artisan is a craftsman who creates premium, handmade goods.

In the context of software development, an artisan strives to bring the same level of care and quality to their day-to-day work.

This group aims to bring together forward-thinking developers of all levels to share best practices and embrace continuous learning.

We were born out of the ALT.NET movement, but quickly morphed into something more broad, with a much larger focus than .NET.  We talk about soft things like career management and team dynamics, and hard technical things like scaling with Erlang, and domain driven design.

You'll have an opportunity to interact with like-minded group members by communicating your thoughts and opinions and presenting things that are important or interesting to you. Plus, free pizza and door prizes! For more information, see
