Software Craftsmanship Manifesto

Here’s the link to the original Software Craftsmanship Manifesto that you can sign.

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 the following:

  • 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.

If you want to know more about Software Craftsmanship, I highly recommend Sandro Mancuso’s book The Software Craftsman.
