"Software is the means by which all human effort can finally cease" - Software Evangelist Gifford Watkins.
The real craft of software programming lies in database structure. Creating from scratch every possible reoccuring human activity within an organization requires due diligence. Software is then becomes the rat's maze, created to channel individual desire toward the reward, and eliminating repetitive tasks. ==
I've made an edit to make this page more neutral and more about the facts of software craftsmanship: it's inspired by a fairly small set of books and it's also the title of one of these books. There's a potential conflict of interest since I'm the co-author of one of these books.Ade oshineye (talk) 08:53, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
- It certainly would. The article also needs to demonstrate that this is more than just a term which is preferred to "software engineering", and that Software Craftsmanship describes a coherent and consistent set of activities that are distinct from Software Engineering. Simply demonstrating that the term "Software Craftsmanship" has been used several times is not enough.--Michig (talk) 17:38, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Robertwharvey has called the notability of this page into question. Does anybody have any good reliable secondary sources that could be used to indicate the notability of software craftsmanship? Ade oshineye (talk) 23:25, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
- I think notability has been sufficiently addressed in the article since this comment. References to several books, articles, and conferences have been included. - Michael (talk) 19:33, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
