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.

LSCC Talks - November 2019

Goldman Sachs International

This meetup comprises of two talks from members of our community that have volunteered to share their knowledge with us. Thanks to our sponsor Goldman Sachs for hosting the meetup and providing drinks & refreshments. ________________________________________________________ Breaking The Build To Improve Code Quality - Hoshil Sejpal, Nicholas Earnshaw, Sofia Blee During this presentation, we will be focusing on how we use “the build” to enforce higher-quality code. We will take you through some practical tips, tools and techniques that you can employ to ensure you are optimising your build to help drive code quality ________________________________________________________ Speed Architecture at Cazoo - Bob Gregory Technology organisations are under pressure to deliver ever-more quickly in order to compete. In this talk we'll look at some organisational and technical practices that Cazoo use to support a high-performance team, and we'll see how DDD and event-driven microservices map to a serverless architecture. Bob has been a software architect for 10 years, building distributed event-driven systems at Huddle, Made, and Cazoo. He has experience on both monoliths and microservices architectures, and has knowledge of languages in multiple paradigms. He's currently writing a book on hexagonal architecture and DDD for Python programmers ________________________________________________________ Arrival Please sign in at reception upon arrival. ________________________________________________________ Community Code of Conduct Please review our Community Code of Conduct before attending and help us in ensuring a safe environment for everybody.

Craftsmanship Round Table @ Codurance


This is our monthly Software Craftsmanship round table to discuss technology, practices or whatever else takes our fancy. 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. There will be pizza and drinks. There's only room for limited numbers at this event, so if you change your mind please update your RSVP so others can come. Community Code of Conduct Please review our Community Code of Conduct (https://www.meetup.com/london-software-craftsmanship/pages/14935142/Code_of_Conduct/) before attending and help us to ensure a safe environment for everybody.
