What we're about
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Software Crafters Sydney group!
This group is a place to promote good software engineering skills and also get better at soft and hard skills.
Here are some of the activities we’d like to run:
Coding Dojos, with a heavy test-driven development (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-driven_development) focus, refactoring (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_refactoring), design patterns (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_design_pattern), programming paradigms (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programming_paradigm), pair-programming (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pair_programming), mob-programming (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mob_programming), you name it.
Open discussions in the format of panels (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panel_discussion) or fishbowls (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishbowl_(conversation)), traditional presentations, lightning talks (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_talk), pechakucha (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PechaKucha)… to share and learn as much as we can in a not-so-boring way.
We'd appreciate if you could take the time to answer a few quick questions upon joining this group. This is only so we understand whether our initial goals line up with the community's and adjust accordingly.
Thank you very much for your interest and, once again, welcome!
