Code Retreat

This is a code retreat based on Conway's Game of Life.

If you’ve never been to a code retreat, they are a lot of fun and a great experience. They provide an excellent opportunity to practice using new and known techniques, languages, and tools and an opportunity to meet like-minded developers. Maybe you’ll even see something you’ve never seen before (Closure is the new hotness, any expertise out there?). 

This is an activity appropriate to all skill levels. No matter how experienced you are, I’m convinced you will get a lot from the experience.

This is a full day activity in which you will be pairing with different people, using TDD, and solving Conway's Game of Life many times and in many different ways (prepare to be shocked and amazed at the constraints).

I hope to see you there!

Note that there is ample parking, but there is apparently no bus service on Saturday, so you'll have to drive or take a cab.

    Well worth "giving up" a Saturday for. Learned so much. Met great people. Enthusiastic people.
