This month Ray and I wanted to try to do a little friendly and collaborative coding, so we're going to try to do some Code Katas! For those unfamiliar with code katas - they're a way to hone your coding skills and learn more about the technology you're using in a fun way. Essentially, we're hoping to pair (or 3/4/etc) up and give some katas a try. Using Ruby isn't mandatory (though we can of course provide more help this way), and if we don't find a kata set we all like, we can all just establish a problem we'd like to solve and go about it in our teams and discuss at the end of iterations. Something like a Code Retreat with Conway's Game of Life.
We're still hashing out the details, but we're going to try to make this one a lot of fun.
Standard conversations will of course still occur, and if anyone has something they'd like to present, feel free to let me know and we'll make sure to schedule that in as well.
See you on the 21st!
