Wumpus: Exploring Diversity

This dojo offers 3 challenges: 1) Pair-programming with many people, 2) Very short coding sessions, 3) Exploring different designs.

We will program a part of the Wumpus game. Each pair selects a different problem to solve/different design. One of the pair moves on every 15 minutes, nobody stays more than 30. You thus get to see many different designs, get to pair-program with most of the other participants, and practice knowledge & plan sharing.

This is an improved version of a dojo that we organized recently and that was quite popular with the participants: https://github.com/iterate/wumpus-diversity-032013/

    Last time we have discovered that it is really difficult to switch between operating systems, different keyboards, and different IDE shortcuts. The need to unify those was one of the strongest feedbacks. I would therefore like to ask everybody to prepare a setup with US keyboard and IntelliJ with Linux shortcuts (a.k.a. XWin default). I have created a VM with Ubuntu, IntelliJ, and Infinitest that is ready for the dojo; I will use it myself and you can do so as well (I have Mac, which a curse for non-mac humans).

    You can get it via Torrent: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3216097/tmp/coding_vm-ubuntu-13.04.tbz.torrent It will be up usually between 9 and 17 plus some time in the evenings (inluding today evening). The more people get it, the easier it will be :)

    I am looking forward to Wednesday!

    These dojos seems to always collide with work. Maybe next time.

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.
