Software Craftsmanship is sometimes dismissed as being only for individual developers and/or boutique software shops. However, the practices and principles of craftsmanship are just as vital and valid to large organizations as individuals. In this talk, Cory will cover practices and approaches for adopting craftsmanship in your organization. We'll cover specific exercises, organizational challenges, and how to influence both organizational and team-level acceptance.
