Programmers who endure and succeed amidst swirling uncertainty and nonstop pressure share a common attribute: They care deeply about the practice of creating software. They treat it as a craft. They are professionals.

Martin introduces the disciplines, techniques, tools, and practices of true software craftsmanship.
