Danger! Software Craftsmen at Work



David Harvey is concerned that some of the craftsmanship discourse can end up creating a barrier between the software builders and their customers, suggesting that the current Software Craftsmanship movement is a distraction, even a danger.


David Harvey has over 20 years experience in designing, building and managing software development. Now he is working as an agile coach and consultant in some of Europe's largest companies. He has helped companies adopting C++ and OOP, and has spoken on patters, distributed computing, software architecture and practice at various conferences, being chair for OT99 and SPA2009.
