Gilles, craftman from father to son

In my family, we are craftsmen from father to son. My father is mason craftsman, my grandfather too, and I am... software craftsman. I renewed roofs, facades and others, today I realize that the job of my father and my grandfather is not so far from mine.

I will try to tell you why with anecdotes of everyday life of developers and masons.
