The second stop on my craftsmanship tour was last Friday at 8th Light. They’re a local Chicago consultancy that’s active in the software craftsmanship community, especially in building the new Chicago SC group.
Last month when I started planning my travels of indefinite duration, I ran into the blog On Being a Journeyman Software Developer by Corey Haines.
He spent the end of 2008 and most of 2009 traveling around the United States pair programming in exchange for room and board, trading knowledge and having interesting discussions. I saw it and thought, “Hey, I could do that.”
