This is a community for those who want to take software development one step (at a time) further. Those who believe in not just getting the job done, but want to be proud about the kind of work they produce. As the Greek proverb goes:
"Άμα είναι να κάνουμε μια δουλειά, να την κάνουμε καλά!"
It is not a community for experienced, old, senior or advanced developers. Anyone who is passionate about improving on the software development craft is very welcome!
From The Software Craftsmanship manifesto (http://manifesto.softwarecraftsmanship.org/):
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.
