Software Craftsmanship 2016 (Munich Edition)


No Presentations. No Schedule. Just Coding.

After being held in London 2009 to 2013 as a more traditional conference, we are inviting you to spend a day among passionate developers using a whole new format: People who participated in SC 2009 to 2013 all told us the best thing about the conference was meeting likeminded developers who care about their craft, and getting to spend time pairing and sharing ideas and techniques - especially in the breaks, or in the breakout areas.

In previous years, we banned talks. Now, in 2016, we're doing away with sessions altogether. Instead, we'll be putting together a delicious menu of mini-projects that will challenge and stretch your craft, giving you something to pair or mob with other participants on and providing the talking points that made SC20xx so different from other developer events.

And we're spreading the fun, too! In London, Manchester, Atlanta, Munich and hopefully more cities, people will flock together to practice the craft for a day.

Mini-projects will range from small, self-contained code katas - all news ones (no FizzBuzz!) - to big challenges that will take up the whole day (and beyond). Find someone interesting to pair with, pick a mini-project, and off you go! Pair with as many people as you like, or spend the whole day putting an open source code base to rights with a new chum. Or do your own thing. It's entirely up to you.

We'll provide a venue, lunch and drinks plus a menu of suggested mini-projects, and about 40 other passionate code crafters to play with. You bring the rest.

We'd also like you to contribute your own ideas for mini-projects! Please tweet them @jasongorman and @c089.
