Coding Dojo is a meeting where a bunch of coders get together to work on a programming challenge. They are there to have fun and to engage in Deliberate Practice in order to improve their skills.
At the Dojo one can't discuss a form without code, and one can't show code without tests. So the person which is not on the stage can give an idea, but can not fall into discussion with the pair. If he or she wants to implement the idea, he or she ought to become a pair’s member and go to the PC.
In order to perform the Kata we will use Erlang as a programming language, OTP to make our application distributed and IntelliJ IDEA IDE with Erlang plugin to handle the rest. You should take a look on them if you're not familiar with the tools. You can grok Erlang essentials by following this course. Additionally, we'll handle a short introduction before the Dojo and we also supply IntelliJ cheat-sheet. Also, a lenghty but good tutorial is Learn You Some Erlang. And here is a usable Erlang API reference.
1. A willingless to code hard and improve your development skills.
2. 1+ year of development experience is a preference
3. Attendees are responsible to bring and share some food and drinks.
Number of attendees is limited.
NB: the most active participant will get the 'Erlang and OTP in Action' book by Martin Logan, Eric Merritt, and Richard Carlsson from our sponsor Manning Publications Co.
