In 2010 our co-founders started the London Software Craftsmanship Community, the first and largest Software Craftsmanship community in Europe, and led the way to inspire and help with the creation of many other communities around the world. What started as a shared sense of purpose has grown beyond its original epicentre and has become our guiding ethos at Codurance.
Why Codurance is different
Our Software Craftsmanship roots formed at a time when ideas were emerging from the Agile movement, and most of the industry focused on process. Our co-founders Sandro and Mash questioned this approach. Why leave technical practices out? Good processes aren’t a replacement for quality technical practices. Why not combine them as the founders of Agile originally intended? This different perspective was echoed and solidified with the creation of a global Software Craftsmanship movement.
The beliefs and principles we represent
The goal of Software Craftsmanship is clear: raise the bar in the software industry through professionalism and technical excellence. Ingrained in this mindset is the desire to always be and do better - to continuously push the limits in pursuit of excellence. The eternal journey to mastery.
How this comes to life in our company
The craftsmanship ethos shaped who we are as a company. These values run through everything we do. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our work. It’s not just about software, but great UX, great strategy, great organisational alignment and great relationships; which we believe leads to our ultimate goal - customer satisfaction.
