Welcome to the San Diego Software Craftsmanship User Group! This group is for software developers in the San Diego 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.
"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 details on the right to be indispensable. "
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 kata to learn and apply the values, principles, and disciplines of software craftsmanship. Come with your laptop equipped with your favorite programming and unit testing environment. Be prepared to pair up, learn, share and have fun!
