Event Details

Are your software developers professionals?

 

When you seek help for your tax calculations, you demand the knowledge of accounting standards. When you seek medical care, you demand someone who abides by the Hippocratic Oath and the modern professional charter. Similarly, when you seek help with your software development needs, you can demand software professionalism.

 

The vast majority of software developers have yet to learn the practices and disciplines that constitute professional behavior. That's because those practices have only just recently been defined. The software industry is barely fifty years old.  It has taken nearly that long to figure out what software professionalism is.  It is only in the last few years that a set of generally accepted software practices have been defined.  But now they are here, and it's time for management to demand that professional behavior.  In this talk, Robert C. Martin will describe these disciplines, and practices, and will discuss how to raise the professionalism bar in your projects and teams.

 

Complimentary beverages and chef's choice pizza will be served.
