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.
The Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship

As aspiring Software Craftspeople 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.

Codurance Round Table Debate - June


In this session Angela Channer and Ed Farrow will be hosting a round table - if you're using some new technology you think others would be interested in, if you've got a design or some code you'd like to discuss, if you'd like to discuss a specific practice, a problem you are having at work or you'd simply like to see what others have got to say - come along and join in the conversation.

How does it work?

The first 15-30 minutes will be devoted to lightning talks. So if you've got a cool demo, some new technology or just something you think the group might find interesting, controversial or just plain funny, bring it along and share with the group! Don't worry if you've never given a lightning talk before - this is a great opportunity to give a talk in a friendly environment. We'll have a projector and a whiteboard and all talks are restricted to no more than five minutes. The rest of the evening will be run as an Open Space.

Pizza and drinks will be provided, with vegetarian and vegan options available. There's only room for limited numbers at this event, so if you change your mind please update your RSVP so others can come.

Architecture Kata


What's the format?

In this session, get the chance to flex your architectural design muscles!

We'll be split into groups and have a business problem to solve. You'll be tasked with designing a technical architecture to meet that problem context. As with real-life you'll have to manage various trade-offs in your design and interact with a Product Owner to clarify your questions.

At the end of the task we'll showcase our architecture and technology choices back to the wider group as part of a group discussion.

Pizza and drinks will be provided, with vegetarian and vegan options available. All you need to do is bring a machine!
