Utah Software Craftsmanship

Raising the bar with monthly meetings since February 2011

We are a group of programmers that are passionate about our craft. We aspire to the values of the Software Craftsmanship Manifesto.

Meeting Format

Our meeting format differs from your usual technology user group. At each meeting we have:

Lightning Talks

A lightning talk can be on any topic that you feel will be of interest to the group, but it may not go over 5 minutes.

Reading discussion

Each month we break into small groups to discuss a book (or sometimes articles) that we are reading together. You can discover the reading for the next meetup by asking in Slack.

The group usually decides on the next book to read during the meeting when we finish the last one. Some of the books we've read in the past include:

Coding Exercise

Part of our monthly Utah Software Craftsmanship meeting is a 60 minute hands-on coding exercise facilitated by a member of our community. It provides a great opportunity to write some code alongside other craftspeople and practice techniques.

The coding exercises are facilitated by members of our community. If you would like to volunteer, check out these instructions then reach out to the organizers during a meeting or via Slack.

Attend a Meeting

The Utah Software Craftsmanship group generally meets on the first Wednesday of each month. We'd love for you to join us. Please visit our Meetup page for information about time and location for the next meeting.
