About the Book

When we talk about software craftsmanship we always talk about techniques revolving around the act of software creation; how to write clean code, how to test drive, etc.

A professional software craftsman has many tools under his belt. Many are technical in nature, but many others are considered soft skills. This book focuses on one such soft skill; The Inception Workshop.

You can use this book as a guide to help you start your next project, generating the insights you need to really leverage your teams capacity to add value to your customers product.

With the Inception Workshop you will be able to shed light into the uncertainty of a starting project, build a common language and understand your customers needs.

This book is for you if:

  • you consider that you are more than just a typist writing in a different language
  • you think that you can add more value to your customers by understanding what they want
  • you are a the technical lead of a project
  • you are managing a software project

"This book is based on my experieces facilitating a myriad of inception workshops for startups, the government, projects and products." ~ Enrique Comba Riepenhausen

I make photos. They're made not taken because I do a little more than point a camera in a direction and hope for the best. Dave Hoover and I have written a book called Apprenticeship Patterns. It's about the acquisition, development and transmission of skill. I'm toying with the idea of writing a second book. It would be about the foundation, maintenance and death of generative communities. I'm using the word generative to indicate that I'm not looking at the creativity or the productivity of these communities. Instead I care about their ability make new things happen. I work at Google as a Developer Advocate on the Google+ team. That means I care about a stack of technologies including OAuth, Pubsubhubbub and OStatus. It also means that I look for ways to improve the Developer Experience of our APIs and platforms.

Sebastian appreciates the finest things in life: clean code, good illustrations and carrot juice. When he's not standing up in front of a screen, you will find him lost in museums or forests, appreciating the foliage. He will probably run a marathon some day.
