About global code retreat

Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done’, the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.

For an in-depth understanding of the philosophy behind a day of coderetreat, please watch the introduction video on the right side.

Hosts / Facilitators




The day consists of 5-6 sessions of about 45 mins each

During each session, you will work with different partners to discuss and solve sofwtare a simple programming problem: Conway’s Game of Life

Some sessions will introduce restrictions to force you to consider different approaches (i.e. no ‘if’ statements, ping-pong approach, etc.)

The aim of each session is to learn something, not necessarily to solve the problem. You can use whatever language you like, but at the end of each session you must throw away your code!

Each session will end with a retrospective where everyone will discuss what they have learned

At the end of the day, a final retrospective gets everyone to think about what they have learned, what has surprised them and what they would try to do differently moving forward

All you need to bring is a laptop and enthusiasm![/meetup_text]
