Columbia, MD is participating in the Global Day of Coderetreat 2012!

Coderetreat (http://coderetrea...­) is a day-long, intensive practice 
event focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. 
By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused 
practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the 
coderetreat format has proven to be a fun and highly effective means of 
skill improvement.

For 32 hours on December 8th, Coderetreats will be held all over the 
world as part of the Global Day of Coderetreat 
(http://globalday....­). The Global Day of Coderetreat helps 
to raise awareness of Coderetreats and brings people together from all 
over the world. Most importantly, The Global Day of Coderetreat helps to 
support global efforts to find, encourage, and educate the next 
generation of software developers (through the Coderetreat Community 
Contribution Fund - http://coderetrea...­).

Last year, 94 cities participated. This year, we anticipate 
approximately 200 cities will participate with an average of 15-20 
participants per city.

To celebrate this significant event, we'll be participating in some 
global activities in addition to our normal Coderetreat activities. 
Afterwards, stick around and we'll all go out to dinner or for a few 
drinks. It's going to be a lot of fun!

You can register at: http://mdgdcr2012...­

You only need to bring a laptop with the development tools you require 
to write code using your chosen programming languages.

This event is sponsored by Riverstone Enterprise Solutions 
(http://www.rivsol...­). If you have any problems registering, or have 
any other questions, feel free to contact [address removed].
