Coding Dojo

If you want to become a top notch programmer, this event is for you.


"Dojo" is a Japanese word for a place where you go to learn through practice.

At a Coding Dojo, programmers practice their skills in a fun and social environment.

 

 

 

Come to the first coding dojo organized by Colombo Agile Meetup and hone your skills.

The session will be an informal workshop facilitated by Johannes Brodwall, who is an experienced programming instructor. There will be food, drink and informal chatting, as well as coding.

The format works like this:
The facilitator presents a programming problem (often called a "code kata" - from another Japanese word)
The group discusses how to approach the problem
Depending on the size of the group, groups of 2 to 8 developers work at the problem at the same time
After some time of working on the problem, we come together and compare solutions and what we've learned
We eat and drink and discuss more coding issues :)


Please bring your notebook with you.

    A kind request for who have RSVP "Yes":

    If you are not able to attend to this workshop, please mark "No" to RSVP as there are many in the waiting list. We have to limit this to 16 as this is a hands-on workshop

  • sajeetharan

    October 10, 2012

    • Thushara W.

      I will make the waiting list enable. wish you will get a spot if someone cancel it . Unfortunately we can open to only 16 developers in this meetup as this is a hands on coding session.
