    • Outline
      Why do we need Software Craftsmen?
      Characterization of a Software Craftsman
      Manifesto of Software Craftsmanship
      How to become a Software Craftsman
    • Why do we need Software Craftsmen?
    • “The best processes in the world will not save a project from failure if the people involved do not have the necessary skills to execute the process; conversely, really good developers can make any process work”
      – Pete McBreen, Software Craftsmanship: The New Imperative
    • The Total Costofowning a Mess
      “You have probably been slowed down by messy code. The degree of the slowdown can be significant. Over the span of a year or two, teams that were moving very fast at the beginning of a project can find themselves moving at a snail's pace.”
      “Over time the mess becomes so big and so deep and so tall, they can not clean it up. There is no way at all”
      “As the mess builds, the productivity of the team continues to decrease, asymptotically approaching zero. As productivity decreases, management does the only thing they can; they add more staff to the project in hopes of increasing productivity.”
      “Furthermore, they, and everyone else on the team, are under horrific pressure to increase productivity. So they all make more and more messes, driving the productivity ever further toward zero”
      - Robert C. Martin, Clean Code
    • How Scrum Can Fail
    • “Agilists assume craftsmanship
      Only few people pursue craftsmanship”
      • JurgenAppelo
      http://www.noop.nl/2009/05/agile-wrongfully-assumes-craftsmanship.html
    • Why do we need Software Craftsmen…?
    • … Because crappy code amplify the risk of failure – even for agile projects!
    • When do we write crappy code?
    • Pressure
    • When we have to “Get It Done”!
    • ”Get It Done”
      vs.
      ”Get It Right”
    • An idea
    • ConstantPressure
    • Every Week
    • Pressure
    • Every Month
    • Pressure
    • Every Year
    • Pressure
    • What differentiate between making the choice of “Get It Done” vs. “Get It Right”?
    • Skill deficiency
    • A Software Craftsman will choose “Get It Right”
    • Because he has the skills to do so…
    • Not only will he “Dot It Right”, he will also do it for the right reasons…
    • The characterization of a Software Craftsman
    • He will “Do It Right” – also under pressure
    • He takes responsibility
    • He takes pride in his work. Both the end product and the process towards it
    • He signs his work
    • “Software Craftsmanship is all about putting responsibility and pride back into the software development process. As Hunt and Thomas (The Pragmatic Programmer) state, we need to start ‘signing our work’ again, just as other craftsmen do”
      – Pete McBreen, Software Craftsmanship: The New Imperative
    • He is a continuous learner. When he doesn’t work, he spends his time studying, to find new methods and tools can refine him as a Software Craftsman
    • “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest”
      - Benjamin Franklin
    • He practice deliberately, and understands the difference between practice and work. He practices in order to be prepared for work
    • He writes code
    • “Knowledge is not the same as having the skills and practical ability to create software”
      – Pete McBreen, Software Craftsmanship: The New Imperative
    • He has the right attitude towards Software Development
    • He contribute to the community
    • Characterization of a Software Craftsman
      Will “Do It Right”
      Take responsibility
      Take pride in his work
      Signs his work
      Continuous learner
      Practice deliberately
      Write code
      The right attitude
      Contribute to the community
    • How to become a Software Craftsman…
    • Tips from The Pragmatic Programmer:
      Care about your craft
      Think about your work
    • Start learning
    • Take responsibility for your professional career and apply what you’ve learned
    • Start to Practice
      Code Dojos
      Code Katas
      Pair programming with other fellow Craftsmen
    • What to practice?
      TDD – can be applied to all languages
      Functional, dynamic and statically typed languages – learn the different paradigms
      Refactoring – learn how to change your code efficiently
      Design patterns
      Tools (ReSharper, Visual Studio, Ndepend, Pex etc)
      Frameworks (Nhibernate, Mongo db etc)
