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.

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!
