Why Software Craftsmanship ?

Software craftsmanship is an approach to software development that emphasizes the coding skills of the software developers themselves.

Since at Agile Partner we believe that the Software Craftsmanship Manifesto extends and challenges the assumptions of the Agile Manifesto, we think it is important to propose a training on the technical aspects of our industry.
