I immediately signed the manifesto when I first saw the software craftsmanship. Since my boyhood days, I always wondered and inspired by traditional craftsmen who brings the artistic outlook to any materials. Whether it’s wooden made art, or glass art or concrete arts as modern homes, it’s always been inspiring for me about how the artist dives into the creativity and bring it a life with their hands, mind and concentration. It’s been one of my wish to lead life like them from heart and soul. After going through this software craftsmanship manifesto, I felt I’m also inclusive as one of such craftsmen in terms of software development. So what does the software craftsmen manifesto says?
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.Software Craftsmanship Manifesto, Raising the Bar
I’m dedicated to bring well crafted software with the flexibility of extensions, guiding and urging the peers to get that excellence in software development and helping the customer with additional values.
Thanks to Jon McBee who is well known developer/architect in our LabVIEW community, who has introduced me to his manifesto via his website resources.
