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.

About Matt Belcher, Principal Software Craftsperson at Codurance

After completing his degree in Computer Science, Matt joined a medium-sized online travel company as a Systems Developer. During his time there he got the opportunity to work with a team of consultants on building the first Service-Oriented-Architecture within the company. That was Matt’s first experience working in an Agile manner and following XP practices.

From there, his passion for Agile practices and software craftsmanship grew and a year later he joined ThoughtWorks. During his 8 years there, Matt worked with a large number of clients across many locations, tech stacks, languages and technical architectures. He played numerous roles during his time from Software Developer to Technical Lead.

Matt is now a Principal Craftsperson at Codurance, a global software consultancy where he is passionate about helping Organisations improve their software delivery capabilities, whether it be through embedding good technical practices or establishing a clear technical vision.

In his spare time, Matt enjoys travelling, playing the guitar and keeping fit. He is also currently learning Vietnamese.
