There has been an interesting debate going on recently around the software craftsmanship manifesto. Rather than pouring oil into the fire, I just collected some links and resources so you can make your own mind up on the subject. Obviously, this is a rather subjective choice from people I know or follow on Twitter. It is in roughly chronological order as they effectively form a discussion trail.
