Aside from pizza and beer, we'll be having two speakers this month.
The Case For Craftsmanship
What is Software Craftmanship and why does it matter? What does it really gain us anyway? With all the pressures at play in modern shops, does it make sense in terms of time, money, people, or the business competitive landscape? How can we tell if it should be better? Joe Gee will go through the pieces that make this such a crucial conversation for us as practitioners and for our industry.
Why hiring managers need Craftsmen. Software craftsmanship from a recruiters perspective.
Why managers need craftsman (even if they don’t know it)? Why is Craftsmanship important to your career? How do you present craftsmanship in an interview setting? Why the most important deliverable is the software itself; not supporting processes? Why should developers focus on technical excellence? Jeremy Crum will discuss how and why practicing craftsmanship can take your development career to the next level.
