Hi Everyone

TL;DR opportunity for a coding dojo with an expert TDD/BDDer.  Please let me know if you are interested in attending next week and your preferred days

TDD/BDD Guru John Ferguson Smart will be in Melbourne next week.  He is interested in running a Coding Dojo if there are enough takers.  

We've run a couple of dojo/kata sessions in December and March where we worked through different coding exercises in a TDD fashion.  Those who went will already be familiar.  For everyone else here's the definition of a dojo

A 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 DeliberatePractice in order to improve their skills.

John runs Wakaleo Consulting, which focuses on helping organisations build up their TDD/BDD capabilities and providing training and mentoring in this space.  He has also written numerous articles and spoken at conferences and also has an upcoming manning book, BDD in Action. 

It would be a fantastic opportunity to take hold of while he is here.  I know its short notice, but if you are free next week and interested then please reply back here with a preferred day(s) and we'll see if we can organise something. 

Best Regards
