This talk investigates the master – apprentice relationship of fictional yet very inspiring heroes, Miyagi and Daniel, from the movie Karate Kid in a software engineering perspective. Armagan talks about software craftsmanship and gives concrete examples on how engineers should shape their software careers.

What is craftsmanship? How does it apply to software engineering? How can we improve our self-learning skills? How can we help junior developers and speed up their learning?

In this talk, Armagan goes over various teachings from the 80’s movie Karate Kid, relating them to concrete problems software engineers face in their daily lives. The attendees will instantly recognize the references and how the teachings will apply to their lives. It’s an intriguing and fun presentation and at the end, the attendees will leave with solid best practices for improving engineering skills.

Team leaders, lead developers and managers will learn how to properly assist and guide professional development of their junior team members, and junior developers will learn how to embrace apprenticeship in order to steadily improve their craft.
