Benjamin jumped in and will tell us more about the world of Clean Code, Katas, Dojos, Code Retreats, TDD and more in August.
The SLUB Dresden will kindly host us in the great Klemperer-Saal.


Software Craftsmanship is a movement in software engineering that aims to regard software development as a skilled craft instead of a classical engineering approach. The movement relies on 4 principles: Clean Code, practice, lifelong learning and communities.

In this talk – which includes many examples and pictures – you will learn about its origin and the historic background, its current state and all available forms of participation. At the end of this session you will also be able to recognize different TDD approaches, software design principles and kata constraints. Hence, I want to encourage you to tread the path of becoming a better software crafter yourself.
