Spot On



I would love to see someone rewrite the Software Craftsmanship Manifesto in terms of getting results and delighting customers. I don’t want “steadily adding value,” I want “amazing their customers every day!” Software craftsmen should be egoless, humble, with a focus on the outcome rather than the code or the process. I’d like a call to arms to stop navel-gazing and treat programming as the skilled trade that it is.

I couldn’t agree more. I’ll even forgive the writer for obsoleting half of the draft posts in my composition book. Because as soon as I read this, it clicked for me.

And if you take the time to read through Dan North’s original and follow up posts, I think you’ll forgive me for doing a link post.
