Grasping the Craftmanship

Lars Petter Hauge

Lightning talk - in English

This talk is a subjective presentation of how it has been coming from a different educational background and now working in Software Innovation in Equinor.

I have a background in Petroleum Technology, and I spent a fair amount of hours writing small scripts in Python, Visual Basics and a range of minor IPL's. I really enjoyed the time working with that part of my project, so when there was an opening in Software Innovation in Equinor, I applied.

Software Craftmanship is highly valued within the Software Innovation department, demonstrated by how we work and how we deliver. Here I will take you through some of the experiences I've gained the last two years.

I also hope this talk will provide some understanding of how it is to change field of experience, and possibly give some suggestions for a smoother transition towards a developer profession.
