What we're about

This is a community for those who care and are proud of what they do. For those developers, regardless how experienced they are, who want to improve and master their craft.

This is a community for those who believe that being average is just not good enough.

(Please find down bellow our mission, in Romanian)

The Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship

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.

We are Passionate Software Developer aiming to get better at their profession, no matter the programming language.

We believe in the power of example, so passionate members and organizers will regularly aim to grow passion in the apprentices in this community.

De ce o comunitate de software craftsmanship?

Foarte multe companii din Romania incearca astazi sa isi consolideze o cultura tehnica, cu accent pe Clean Code, Refactoring, Pair Programming si Test-Driven Development. Ele au realizat ca succesul depinde in mod direct de gradul de implicare al dezvoltatorilor, si incearca acum sa creasca entuziasmul si skill-urile oamenilor.

Aceasta comunitate isi doreste sa vina in intampinarea acestei nevoi, oferind doze constante de entuziasm.

Ce ne dorim sa organizam:

• Live-coding katas, transmise online, care sa inspire 'drag de cod' in dezvoltatori. Multi nici nu banuiesc ce interesant si profund poate fi sa scrii cod.

• Un club de lectura in care sa discutam pe marginea unor capitole/fragmente din carti tehnice.

• Code Retreat: o zi intreaga in care poti sa-ti dezvolti skillurile de programare, cu focus pe Clean Code, Refactoring, TDD.

• Remote pair programming sessions

• Coding Dojos in care sa scriem cod impreuna

• Cursuri deschise

• Alte activitati, cu implicarea oamenilor pasionati.

Nota: Activitatile sustinute de Victor se vor desfasura in general in timpul programului de lucru, poate in timpul pranzului, maxim 1-2 ore.

Ne propunem totodata sa incurajam si sa ajutam oameni tehnici sa iasa in fata si sa inceapa sa impartaseasca din experientele lor. Credem ca cel mai rapid mod de a creste este sa prezinti altora.

Ce nu ne propunem:

- Nu ne propunem sa organizam intalniri de tip after-hours tech talk, sa aducem speakeri, etc. In acest domeniu, comunitatile deja consacrate se descurca excelent. Daca nu stiati de ele, gasiti linkuri cu cele mai active mai jos (ping us daca am uitat vreuna).

Techy Readers #15: Refactoring 2nd, Chapter 3 - Bad Smells in Code /part2

This is a discussion transmitted over the phone about a book chapter, about craftsmanship culture, attitude, but also code crafting hard-skills. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME CHAPTER, AS WE DID NOT HAD TIME TO COVER ALL COMMENTS About the speaker: Victor Rentea is an Independent Technical Trainer (http://victorrentea.ro) and Lead Architect at IBM Romania. He is passionate about Clean Code, TDD, Simple Design and Extreme Programming, about which he regularly speaks at international conferences. He is the founder of this community through which he wants to seed the desire for professionalism in Romanian Developers. In this attempt, he also posts daily thoughts on Twitter, Linked In and Facebook. How does it work? - You enroll to the event. - You (try to) read the indicated chapter before the call. - You extract several ideas or quotes you like and you post them as comments to this event. - You dial-in to the teleconference using the details that you will be transmitted via email (30 minutes before the start). - You listen. Please expect doing a lot of listening.. - The hour is chosen so as to be able to listen on handsfree while taking your lunch ;) - We will cover all posted comments. - If you wish to bring a new idea during the call, you either post a new comment to the meetup page (I will refresh) or you unmute yourself (by dialing *6) and you speak up. Link to the chapter (safari books): https://learning.oreilly.com/library/view/refactoring-improving-the/9780134757681/ch03.xhtml Hint: if you only read the chapter, this initiative has already largely attained its goal :) The long-term aim of this initiative is to bring a small contribution to strengthening the technical culture inside companies in Romania. IMPORTANT: Dial-in details will be emailed to all enrolled participants 30 minutes before the start. We will speak in Romanian (🇷🇴).
