The Israeli software craftsmanship group is on its way

As aspiring Software Craftsmen we are raising the bar of professional software development by practicing it and helping others learn the craft. Through this work we have come to value:

Not only working software, but also well-crafted software

Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value

Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals

Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships

That is, in pursuit of the items on the left we have found the items on the right to be indispensable.

Today I was in the very first meeting of the software craftsmanship in Israel group, and it was a very good start.

We had a great turnout – I estimate that than 50 eager software developers came.  The organizer Uri Lavi presented the idea of software craftsmanship, it’s roots in Agile practices and explained about the various methodologies and practices that makes a professional software developer.

At the end of the session a prime number code kata was shown – go watch it now if you want to see a good example of how TDD should be done.תמונה047
