Software Quality Award

badge

I'm a big fan of rules and discipline in software development; as an example, see Are You a Hacker or a Designer?. Also, I'm a big fan of object-oriented programming in its purest form; for example, see Seven Virtues of a Good Object. I'm also a co-founder and the CEO of Zerocracy, a software development company through which I put my admiration of discipline and clean design into practice.

I want to encourage you to share my passion—not just by reading this blog but through making real open source software in a disciplined way. This award is for those who are brave enough to swim against the current and value quality above everything else.

ATTENTION: Submission to 2018 is open.
