Presentation: Craftsmanship over Hype

Track: Software Craftsmanship / Time: Thursday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Hall 10

Since it’s inception the Software Craftsmanship movement has evolved. The initial cry for “Craftsmanship over Crap” has receded tremendously. The craftsmen, or instigators of the movement have retired into “doing” rather than talking. Their voices have been heard.

During this period time many of the people behind the original manifesto have continued their journey. Enrique Comba Riepenhausen has consciously been living the life of a journeyman, developing his knowledge, honing his skills and travelling to companies all over the world. Today he will speak about how his experiences have altered his outlook and what drives him now.
