Sandro Mancuso has been coding since a very young age but only started his professional career in 1996. He has worked for startups, software houses, product companies, international consultancy companies, and investment banks. In October 2013, Sandro co-founded Codurance, a consultancy company based on Software Craftsmanship principles and values, as described in his book The Software Craftsman.
During his career, Sandro has worked on a variety of projects, with different languages, technologies, and across many different industries. Sandro has a lot of experience bringing the Software Craftsmanship ideology and Extreme Programming practices to organizations of all sizes. Sandro is internationally renowned for his work in spreading Software Craftsmanship principles and is a renowned speaker at many conferences around the world. His professional aspiration is to raise the bar of the software industry by helping developers become better at—and care more about—their craft through sharing his knowledge, skills, and experiences.
Sandro’s involvement with Software Craftsmanship started in 2010, when he founded the London Software Craftsmanship Community (LSCC), which has become the largest and most active Software Craftsmanship community in the world, with more than 2000 craftsmen. For the past four years he has inspired and helped developers to start and organize many other Software Craftsmanship communities in Europe, the United States, and other parts of the world.
