What is (not) Software Crafting?

What do we mean by Software Craftsmanship? What not? How and why was it born? Why does it matter?

After answering all these questions and introducing concepts like deliberate practice and Open Space Technology, we explore the current status of Software Craftsmanship communities and events around Europe.

A compilation of software crafting-related resources mentioned during the talk can be found @ github.com/dcarral/software-crafting.
