During the last weeks I was busy working on formulating a new user group for Software Professionals.
I am very pleased to invite you to join the group: " Software Craftsmanship in Israel ".
My aim is to discuss and promote software professional skills, through series of articles, posts and monthly meetings. There are plenty of issues to discuss; Education in a technology (explosive) era, Software skills refinement (katas), Agile processes and methods (Refactoring, xUnit Frameworks and Patterns, TDD ...) and of course, Architecture Styles and Design (Selecting the appropriate tools for the requirements).
You are most welcome to join the group!
