Event Description

* Philly dot Net welcomes Bob Martin and 8th Light *

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.


Registrations and RSVP are now closed, here and at Philly Dot Net.

The room will be packed.

And if you are actually a maybe, then please change your RSVP to "Maybe" so we know what configuration we will use to pack the room with everyone.


* Philly dot Net will hold the talk in the meeting room at the Microsoft Office in Malvern.  It is sold out with a waiting list.
