Software Craftsmanship and TDD

January 17th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I gave a talk on software craftmanship back about a year ago. At that time, I spoke to handful of slides and woefully overtime. Since then I extended the slides to just under 40 that may or may not be readable. But I thought that it might be time to put these up if anyone is interested.

Below is the abstract for the slides as a pdf

Software craftsmanship is a movement about getting better at software development particularly through better coding skills. This talk will look at some key discussions over the last ten years with a particular focus on Sennett’s ideas from The Craftsman and ask: what does it mean to become a craftsman or craftswoman? how do we get better? I also look at why as craftspeople we might be troubled and when we may need to be vigilant! I will try outline how this is relevant to practices like continuous integration and test-driven development.
