We are teaming up with WNY's Coding Dojo via Skype for a shared coding dojo here in Cleveland @ LeanDog's ***Hanger*** facility (it is NOT at the boat!).
A coding dojo is an opportunity to practice coding specific problems (katas) for the sole purpose of improving your skills. We generally choose a problem from a site such as Sphere Online Judge or UVa Online Judge. Typically, we'll work in pairs, writing tests to define the problem and coding to pass the tests, solving the problem. This is the basic premise of Agile and ATDD (Acceptance Test Drive Development) along with Red, Green, Refactor.
If you have a project you're working on already, feel welcome to bring it and code in a supportive environment.
Everyone is free to use any language from Ruby to Objective C or Scala. I, Ben Woz, just happen to be a Ruby guy. :)
