Beyond Craft - Revisiting Our Relationship with Software Craft
14 years after its debuts as a movement, Software Craft is still alive and well, with more and more company adoption and with the best conferences even having "Craft" in their names! But the world changed since 2009, with new technologies now mature or mainstream, and even more disruptions coming in. Moreover, the success of Craft also comes with some fetishism which can be worrying. In this session, we'll review the history of Software Craft so far and what's been accomplished through it. Most importantly, we'll suggest how to reconsider your attachment to it, how to fully embrace and get the best out of each shinny novel thing, and where to invest learning in an increasingly post-craft universe!
