The Oath of the Scribe

8th December 2015 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at In The Brain of Robert Martin: The Oath of the Scribe

Uncle Bob is back in town! Join us as he explains how developers and engineers are the modern day scribes and we debate our place in society ask the big questions!

We are the modern day scribes. Nothing happens in our society without us. But so far, we are unorganized, undisciplined, and we have no unifying ethics or standards. Society is becoming aware of us. Software developers have become both villains and heroes in our culture. More importantly, our society depends critically upon us. What oath, if any, should we swear? How would we enforce it?
