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.

Rust Workshop


Come join Craftsperson, Mattsi and learn about what makes Rust interesting, what problems it is good at solving, and write your first Rust code!

Did you know?

Rust is the fastest-growing programming language on GitHub, wins "most loved" language every year in the Stack Overflow developer survey year after year, and is even set to become the second language to ever be used in the Linux Kernel. But despite its growing popularity, most developers haven't had much exposure to Rust.

Installing the Rust toolchain is very simple and can typically be done in two just two terminal commands. If you can do that before the event, it will make it easier to get started: https://www.rust-lang.org/tools/install

London Coding Dojo: TDD Workshop


Join Mattsi Janski and Rowan Lea, Software Craftspeople at Codurance for our TDD workshop.

What’s the format?

After a short intro, we’ll get into groups/pairs or work solo, whatever people feel most comfortable with, and start building.

You choose how you want to work and what language you want to code in. This session is about collaborating with others, becoming a better developer and building your network, in a fun, relaxed environment.

We'll be sharing ideas, discussing best practices and using this as an opportunity to learn from our fellow LSCC coders.

Pizza and drinks will be provided, with vegetarian and vegan options available. All you need to do is bring a machine if you’d like to code along.
