I'm a Craftsman and not an Engineer

After 18 years of software development I'm convinced that software development is a craftsmanship and not an engineering discipline.

The reason is that software engineering is something you can learn at the university but to be a software craftsman you need a lot of practice and you need to get better everyday and learn from mistakes.

So I'm proud to be a craftsman!

Simon, I totally agree. Practice is the thing that makes you better. It keeps you in touch with the real everday topics and problems and prevents that you get lost in too theoretical things.
