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.

Find more event details below.

Digital Theatre is a world-leading provider of theatre-related educational resources to support the teaching and study of the performing arts. The Digital Theatre+ (DT+) platform provides unlimited access for more than 3 million students in over 2,000 schools, colleges and universities across 80+ countries to over 1,300+ full-length productions, backstage insights, interviews, teaching materials and study guides.

In 2020, Digital Theatre decided to rebuild their educational platform with the help of Codurance to bring more content to more educational institutions and students, providing a richer, more intuitive and accessible experience.

Originally the platform was based on Drupal, a Content Management System. One of the many challenges faced during this project was the migration of its content - thousands of hours of video content of live theatre productions, from this system towards Contentful, a headless Content Management System.

Codurance and Digital Theatre decided to use AWS Step Functions for the migration - a low-code visual workflow service used to orchestrate AWS services, automate business processes, and build serverless applications. In this talk we're going to present our experience with this service for migrating content from Drupal to Contentful.


The webinar covers:

- The context of the problem that we solved
- An introduction of AWS Step Functions
- Why AWS Step Functions was the right choice
- Details of the implementation
- Challenges encountered and how we addressed them

Craftsmanship Virtual Round Table

Online event

The London Software Craftsmanship Community is excited to invite its members to the first LSCC round table in the past 14 months. We’re looking forward to virtually welcoming back members both old and new!

Thank you to everyone who filled out our survey, all feedback has been taken onboard! If you would still like the chance to let us know your topic suggestions, feel free to fill out our short survey here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd1I1pPa-M5BexZQwGBtbPH1jVpof0V6Y3bBCviZuJUO-sarw/viewform

Please take a read of our house rules below.

We will start from 13:00 with a bit of chit-chat, at 13:05 we will have our usual introduction, at 13:10 we will proceed to select topics for discussion. We will then divide ourselves into separate rooms to discuss those topics, and at 13:45 we will finish the session by regrouping to share our findings.

Some additional rules for this online event:
- In general, stay unmuted, unless you have a noisy environment. When you're participating, you can use keyboard shortcuts: Alt+A/Cmd+Shift+A for quick muting/un-muting. We have found that it helps create a good atmosphere.
- Try to use a headset or headphones with a good directional microphone. As a general rule, laptops microphone/speaker combo tend to be horrible
- We will have one person from the organisation in each room to help moderate. Use the chat to indicate that you want to speak. The moderator will take care of giving you the turn to speak
- Don't be afraid of using the chat for small comments while someone else is talking, but keep it on topic
- Use the Zoom "Raise Hand" functionality

We will be using Zoom for the event.

Any questions regarding the event, please drop us a message so we can provide answers.
