Toronto Code Retreat is a Meetup group focused on learning and sharing software craftsmanship and testing practices with your peers. Meetups will be held in the style of a Code Retreat, which involves pair programming live with other group members using different programming languages.  Sessions will focus on attempts to solve Conway's Game of Life. Locations will alternate between Toronto and Mississauga.

We intend to hold the sessions the 2nd Thursday of each month. We'll open the meetup and have food available by 6 PM. The first session will start at 7 PM, so please plan on arriving before 6:45. If you arrive late, you should be able to join the next session once it starts. Sessions will go for forty-five minutes with a fifteen minute review, with session two starting at 8 PM and session three starting at 9 PM.

You need to be able to provide the following:

  • Bring a laptop
  • You should have a working development environment installed and ready to use that you have some skill with
  • Have a testing framework installed and ready to go
