Day of Code

This is a day-long Code Dojo at our palatial offices in Moorgate. Food and refreshments provided! See the mailing list for the ongoing discussion as to the exact format of the day, but it will be interesting.

    After Saturday I was inspired to write the game in Objective-C.
    I'm now firmly with Dan on the elegance of [parts of!] Objective-C and this was a great exercise to use as a learning tool!.
    I wrote it in Java too, but without TDD (I just hacked it out). The TDD Obj-C version has less code.

    I sort-of (read:barely) stuck to the rules! ;-) Here's the Objective-C version

    Take away of the day: Clojure makes Objective-C look cool and simple :-P

    • @sleepyfox

      I thought the Obj-C made the Clojure look easy!

    • Dan M.

      Clojure is beautiful, but is somewhat baffling unless you have the knowledge or a tour guide. I am now completely sold on Obj-C method signatures, being able to call them with a kind of argument names in place is very nice. Compare Java style `placePiece("WHITE"­, 1, 4)` to Obj-C `place: @"WHITE" pieceAtX: 1 andY: 4`

    Great turnout, and fantastic help from Jose and Richard.

    November 4, 2012

  • @sleepyfox

    Thanks everyone for a great day, it turned out even better than I thought. Please post code as Gist/PasteBin/whatever. Slides are up on Speakerdeck as usual: https://speakerdeck.com/sleepyfox/london-code-dojos-day-of-code

    Breakfast at 9:00-10:00am for people who want to drink, nibble and/or socialise.

    We're going to be doing a re-run of the LSCC hand-on event last night, using the Sand Pile kata. For those who went last night, you may (or may not) want the opportunity to explore this in more detail than was possible at the short (1 hr) Skillsmatter event.

    Hi Nigel,

    This sounds great.
    could you open up a waiting list please..

    Cheers

    October 23, 2012

  • Gonçalo S.

    will there be a waiting list?

    October 22, 2012

    • @sleepyfox

      There is. I may have to reduce the number of places, depending on how much help I can organise

      October 22, 2012

  • @sleepyfox

    As a note: can people please either a) use their real name on their meetup.com profile or b) leave a note on their RSVP for this event with their real name, as we need this for building security.

    Thanks.

    hi, what are the dominant languages and frameworks used?

    October 19, 2012

    • @sleepyfox

      Hi John, people normally use whatever language and framework they are familiar with. Some people use Code Dojos to help them gain familiarity with new languages or technologies prior to using them in a work environment.

      October 19, 2012

    • @sleepyfox

      We have people using: Node, CoffeeScript, Python, Java, Ruby, Haskell, Clojure, C# and quite a few others.

  • Samir T.

    I really wish I could make this (and all the subsequent ones for the year, but I'm out of the country). Have fun guys, and make awesome things.

    October 19, 2012

    • @sleepyfox

      No worries dude, have a great time!
