Professionals are partners, not laborers. They know how and when to say no. They understand that the business needs and wants strong technical leadership; and that sometimes means pushing back on unrealistic schedules and features. In this talk, Uncle Bob Martin will address what it means for software developers to become professional craftsmen, and the relationship that implies with their employers and the business.
