A Technical Debtor Toward continuous improvement

I've had a number of conversations lately where I argued that software development is much more akin to craftsmanship than to engineering. This usually leads to a lively discussion, especially in an informal context.

Seems I'm not the only one thinking this way. Uncle Bob (Robert C Martin) posted a link to the Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship.

It'll be interesting to see what degree of impact this has on the development community.
