The original Software Craftsmanship conference is back in a brand new format. People who participated in SC2009-2013 all told us the best thing about the conference was meeting likeminded developers who care about their craft, and getting to spend time pairing and sharing ideas and techniques - especially in the breaks, or in the breakout areas.

So, at SC2016, we creating one big breakout area and tearing up the schedule.

In previous years, we banned talks. Now, in 2016, we're doing away with sessions altogether.

Instead, we'll be putting together a delicious menu of mini-projects that will challenge and stretch your craft, giving you something to pair with other participants on and providing the talking points that made SC20xx so different from other developer events.

Mini-projects will range from small, self-contained code katas - all news ones (no FizzBuzz!) - to big challenges that will take up the whole day (and beyond). Find someone interesting to pair with, pick a mini-project, and off you go! Pair with as many people as you like, or spend the whole day putting an open source code base to rights with a new chum. Or do your own thing. It's entirely up to you.

We'll provide a venue, pizza for lunch, tea and coffee throughout the day, Wi-Fi, a menu of suggested mini-projects, and about 40 other passionate code crafters to play with. You bring the rest.
