Cyber Dojo

For our first Meetup of 2014 we've NOT got Jon Jagger coming up from deepest Somerset to turn Deep Space Works into a Cyber-Dojo. But we're going to give it a go anyway ;-)

Cyber-Dojo is an online tool built by Jon to promote the deliberate practice of test driven development,team dynamics and collaboration. I guess this is one primarily for the programmers, the tool supports a large amount of languages. You can read more about it here.

Bring a laptop if you can. We'll try and start at 7pm rather than 7:30 so we don't run too late. £3 donations would be appreciated to help Jon's and Su's expenses.

    Thanks for last night everyone, it was certainly fun. The new experiences of cyber-dojo and pair programming, along with VERY distant memories of JavaScript was not ultimately too productive but was still very educational and entertaining. Looking forward to doing it all again.....Hmmm, does that make me sound a bit of a geek!!!?

    Really enjoyed it, and also beats the heck out of github in the social coding department. Thanks everyone for a fun evening (and I never thought I'd say that about an evening involving Javascript). Coding pass-the-parcel (make sure you leave a failing test for the next driver!)

    It was great to code and talk with some new people. Hopefully see everyone again.

    Sorry Tom, the 7.00 start was pushing it and today is proving to be a longer one. Hope it goes well.

    Ok, we're going to give it a go without Jon. Should be fun.

    Is there anything we need to set up before we arrive tonight, or is the only prerequisite a laptop?

      The tool is online, if we do it ourselves I don't think you need to install anything.

    Hi All

    Unfortunately Jon Jagger is unwell and unable to make it up tonight.

    We can:

    * Carry on regardless and try to run it without him. I've played with the CyberDojo a bit but, it will be more a process of discovery than anything slick
    * We could cancel and reschedule for Jon to come up another time. What do you think? If you can let me know before lunch time I'll make the call then

    Cheers

    Tom
