Craft Code is a considered and conscientious response to the commodification of coding. Our current focus is on web development.
Craft Code values careful, elegant, intentional, bespoke design. Craft Code shuns one-size-fits-all assembly-line work and endless configuration.
We recognize human beings as central to labor, both as creator and consumer. Our goal is to return the machine to subordinate status.
An excellent exemplar of the Craft Code approach at work is the Craft Code site itself.
Craft Code is not intended for enterprise environments. Its applicability there remains untested but might surprise us.
