The Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship (http://manifesto.softwarecraftsmanship.org/) says, "As aspiring Software Craftsmen we are raising the bar of professional software development by practicing it and helping others learn the craft." This group is about putting that statement into action in Central Illinois.
The world of software craftsmanship is not limited to developers. Students, designers, agile coaches, sysadmins, and project managers are among the many other people likely to be interested in what we are about.
***PLEASE NOTE*** The "man" in "craftsMANship" is short for "mankind" which is an inclusive term for all human beings. We value diversity, do not discriminate on any basis, and joyfully invite everyone to join us in the pursuit of excellence in software.
