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.
I've asked a few people to blog on the following question:
Do you think that the bar of professionalism has been raised in the 5 years since the Software Craftsmanship Manifesto was published? Why or why not?
- First, my own Response: Five Years of Raising the Bar
- Markus Gaertner: Five Years of Fighting Crappy Code
- Laura Morillo-Velarde Rodriguez: Software Craftsmanship Manifesto
If you'd like your blog added here, hit me up on twitter.
