A Question of Craftsmanship - Kevlin Henney
Monday, September 10, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CEST)
Evening talk and discussions with Kevlin Henney
Although a great deal of the enthusiasm for Agile development initially grew from software developers, the perception is that much of the current focus in Agile circles has moved to organisational aspects, product management and soft skills. Craftsmanship has long been a quality and a metaphor applied to software development, but more recently software craftsmanship has emerged as a more explicit movement and branding focused on reclaiming and re-emphasising the importance of the detail, of how to code and how to do it well.
There are many different perspectives on what the craftsmanship metaphor implies and what benefits and liabilities it may have. This session lays out and explores the motivation, implications, pros and cons of a craftsmanship view of software development.

When & Where
Foo Café is an initiative to create an independent meeting place for people within the IT-industry in the Malmö/Lund-area. Our ambition is to support user groups and associations in the region. It is a place for planned and spontaneous meetings over a great coffee or a cold beer. To obtain this goal we need support from individuals, larger enterprises, regional companies and organizations.
We would like to establish the perfect meeting place to share, learn and create new thoughts and ideas.
