Product description

About the Author

Sandro Mancuso has coded since a very young age but only started his professional career in 1996. He has worked for startups, software houses, product companies, international consultancy companies, and investment banks. In October 2013, Sandro cofounded Codurance, a consultancy company based on Software Craftsmanship principles and values.

 

During his career, Sandro has worked on various projects, with different languages and technologies and across many different industries. Sandro has a lot of experience bringing the Software Craftsmanship ideology and Extreme Programming practices to organizations of all sizes. Sandro is internationally renowned for his work in spreading Software Craftsmanship principles and is a renowned speaker at many conferences around the world. His professional aspiration is to raise the bar of the software industry by helping developers become better at–and care more about–their craft through sharing his knowledge, skills, and experiences.

 

Sandro’s involvement with Software Craftsmanship started in 2010, when he founded the London Software Craftsmanship Community (LSCC), which has become the largest and most active Software Craftsmanship community in the world, with more than 2,000 craftsmen. For the past four years he has inspired and helped developers to start and organize many other Software Craftsmanship communities in Europe, the United States, and other parts of the world.


From the Publisher

Programming Software Architecture Software Development
A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship Practical Advice for the Professional Programmer A Craftsman's Guide to Software Structure and Design Professionalism, Pragmatism, Pride Get Better Performance Out of Your Legacy Systems
Title Clean Code Clean Coder Clean Architecture The Software Craftsman Working Effectively with Legacy Code
Core Concept Best agile practices of cleaning code “on the fly” that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer—but only if you work at it. Robert C. Martin introduces the disciplines, techniques, tools, and practices of true software craftsmanship. This book is packed with practical advice–about everything from estimating and coding to refactoring and testing. Uncle Bob presents the universal rules of software architecture that will help you dramatically improve developer productivity throughout the life of any software system. Sandro Mancuso helped found the world’s largest organization of software craftsmen; now, he shares what he’s learned through inspiring examples and pragmatic advice you can use in your company, your projects, and your career. Is your code easy to change? Can you get nearly instantaneous feedback when you do change it? Do you understand it? If the answer to any of these questions is no, you have legacy code, and it is draining time and money away from your development efforts. Michael Feathers offers start-to-finish strategies for working more effectively with large, untested legacy code bases.
Endoresement "It is the best pragmatic application of Lean principles to software I have ever seen in print." —James O. Coplien, Founder of the Pasteur Organizational Patterns project “Some technical books inspire and teach; some delight and amuse. Rarely does a technical book do all four of these things. Read, learn, and live the lessons in this book and you can accurately call yourself a software professional.” —George Bullock Senior Program Manager Microsoft Corp. "A good architecture comes from understanding it more as a journey than as a destination, more as an ongoing process of enquiry than as a frozen artifact." -- Kevlin Henney "If you are the type of programmer, team lead, or manager who craves to be able to go home after a long day of work, look in the mirror, and say, 'Damn, I did a good job today!' then this is the book for you." -- Robert C. Martin "This book describes a set of disciplines, concepts, and attitudes that you will carry with you for the rest of your career and that will help you to turn systems that gradually degrade into systems that gradually improve." --- Robert C. Martin
