...Learn TDD with Codemanship

My Entry In Software Craftsmanship Wandering Book Thingummyjig

I've just uploaded my entry in The Wandering Book: Zeitgeist Of The Software Craftsmanship Movement.

My terrible scrawl might not be readable to everyone, so here it is in proper computer writing:

Software Craftsmanship is not about masters and apprentices. It is not about manifestos, and it is not about guilds or other closed shops.

Software craftsmanship is not about TDD or refactoring or other Extreme Programming practices.

Nor is software craftsmanship about coding dojos or the randori style.

It is not a lifestyle choice, nor is it a community you must belong to.

If you care about the quality of the software you create, and are continually learning and practicing to improve the quality of your code, then you are a software craftsman

The book will now wend it's merry way to Dave Hoover via the miracle of the modern postal service.
