I am a software craftsman, are you?

Having signed the manifesto for software craftsmanship I’d like to make the following statement

As aspiring software craftsman I’m raising the bar of professional software development by practising it and helping others learn the craft. Through this work I’ve 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 I’ve have found the items on the right to be indispensable.

Do you work with software? Do you agree with the above statement? If so, then I would suggest that you sign the manifesto!
