Happy Birthday, Software Craftsmanship Manifesto!

Today marks the 5th Anniversary of the publication of the Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship. We are doing a couple of things to celebrate to mark the day.

Thanks to the work of Li-Hsuan Lung, Kevin Liddle, Sandro Padin, Graham Brooks, and Nick Meccia You can now search for your name among the 12,000+ signatories. There is also a new "metrics" link to a chart that shows the growth of the signatures over time. It's amazingly linear. Check it out
