    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?

    • @sleepyfox

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

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

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

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

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
