Software Crafting & Testing Open Space: Ghent
An Open Space for all things Software Crafting and Testing. Everyone welcome! Do you have a passion, interest or curiosity in software development and testing? Great, you're in! Whether you're a seasoned expert or just taking your first steps in the industry, we're pretty sure we've got something for you (and vice-versa). Lightning talks! We start off with lightning talks, where you can give a 5-7 minute presentation about something cool you want to share. These are usually rather informal, so don't worry if you've never done this before - this is a great opportunity to give a talk in a friendly environment. The Open Space itself! We usually have 4-6 rooms where 30 minute sessions are run in parallel. A session can be an informal discussion in comfy chairs, a demo or presentation, practicing katas together, or anything inbetween. There are no requirements for you before you can join a session - just bring yourself, an open mind and your opinions. Before the Open Space starts, anyone can suggest sessions about something they want to learn about. Whether you're an expert on some topic, or you're just getting your feet wet, the only requirement to run a session is that you're there to host it. A safe space as well. Our meetup is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meetup experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. To enable this, we expect everyone attending to follow the code of conduct at . (

What we're about

This community is a breeding ground for lots of cool events involving software engineering. It is open to all people who are passionate about development and strongly believe in mastering the craft of software. Your experience level can be that of a level 1 front end ninja to that of a level 80 embedded software magician. Everybody who believes their craft is something to be proud of and something worth mastering and sharing is welcome to join our ranks.

These are some of the basic principles we believe in as software crafters:

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

This community is fully (programming) language agnostic and will hosts events in whatever (programming) language is relevant for the people joining the event. In the past this has mostly happened in English and Dutch.
