"Not only individuals and interactions, but also a Community of Professionals"
I believe the most important point in the manifesto of software craftsmanship is the third one - "Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals". Only a community can bring awareness and spread the news of software craftsmanship among software professionals. The backing of a group will help an engineer to foster his/her imaginations into reality. A community is formed by constant gatherings and knowledge sharing sessions. Software Communities help to spread the news about good coding practices, ethical standards of engineers, responsibilities of software professionals to the society etc etc.
This is exactly what we do in Eclipse Community gatherings. I am more than excited to attend 'The Eclipse Day India 2010'. Hope to see you there.
If you are not able to make it there, don't worry, tune to this blog, I will brief about the happenings of the event soon.
