Ex nihilo nihil fit (Alter Ego) Victor Hurdugaci's Alter Ego

Writing code and creating working software is not hard but writing quality code and creating valuable software is.

The software craftsmanship manifesto values:

Not only working software, but also well-crafted software.
Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value.
Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals.
Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships.

That is, in pursuit of the items on the left we have found the items on the right to be indispensable.

One can hardly doubt that the principles from then manifesto can be satisfied in other way than through passion. Of course, not all individuals involved in the process of software creation do their job with passion and dedication. Some do their job just because they need money or because they have some other interest and they really don't care about the final product. They create software because they have to and usually is bad software.
