Shokunin Kishitsu: the craftman's spirit

Back in 2010 Matt Linderman posted a succinct definition of Shokunin Kishitsu to the 37 signals blog. The Pragmatic Programmers discussed core tenants of Software Craftsmanship in their foundational book "The Pragmatic Programmer".


In the well received 2011 Japanese documentary 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi' Shokunin Kishitsu is personified in the subject. Lets discuss Shokunin Kishitsu as it applies to Software Development. The term comes with more responsibility then "Ninja" "Rockstar" does craftsmanship come at too high a price for a culture of brogramming?
