    Hi all, i've been confirmed, what a pleasure! It will be my first coding Dojo. I guess i must bring my laptop. Anything else?
    PS : I code in Perl, anybody else?

    August 16, 2012

    • @sleepyfox

      Perl is fine, and just your laptop and charger with your usual IDE and test framework will be enough :-)

      Cheers sleepyfox =o) See you on monday.

    Maybe we need weekly Dojos then? What would the bottleneck be? Finding venues ? Experienced organizers ?

  • Fox R.

    Great idea. Can I then attend both events? Practice JavaScript TDD on one, and Java TDD on second one.

    July 19, 2012

  • @sleepyfox

    There's a waiting list in under 2 hours since announcement?! How would people feel about splitting this event into two events per month?
