Limited Capacity seats available

We all know that continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. We also know that Craftsmanship is currently the best known approach to professionalism in development. But what skills really get us there, and how do we develop them in ourselves and others. We will explore briefly what it means to be an apprentice or journeyman, but then delve deeper into how to develop these skills in ourselves and our teams. This discussion will be based on a matrix of skills and professional practices necessary and the activities necessary to show competence in said skills(hint: its not a test!)
Learning Outcomes:
  • Attendees should have a good idea of a way to help develop themselves and their team members' technical expertise and also foster an atmosphere of Craftmanship in their workshops.
