Software Craftsmanship - Growing a Technical Culture
Decades ago, IT started as a single engineering practice, but over the years it grew increasingly fragmented. The overspecialization we face today, in the context of a management-first agile transformation leads to a lack of responsibility, blaming games, repeated patching, painful communication overhead, and fulminating costs. The software craftsmanship movement is rising in this post-agile world with professionals that take control of their careers and continuously learn in the pursuit of mastery. But changing mindset requires determined team efforts and communities, especially when working remotely. What techniques and tricks can you use to grow such a culture of learning in your team? Find out from the founder and lead of one of the largest software craftsmanship communities in the world.
