Software Craftsmanship Conference 2009
On the 26th February, Backstage sponsored of the Software Craftsmanship Conference 2009 at BBC Media Village, London. It was a day of workshops for programmers, looking specifically at how to develop good working practices, through discipline and good habits.
Jason Gorman kindly gave us an overview of the event.
"This is a conference about building it right."
Apart from meeting some great programmers, I attended workshops on a variety of subjects, such as: Mapping Personal Practices, Ruby and Kata, Responsibility-driven Design with Mock Objects and My Defining Moments.
It was a really inspiring and very educational day, and attendees certainly seemed to get a lot out of it. When organiser Jason Gorman asked everyone at the close of conference if they would like to do it again next year, there was a resounding 'YES'!
