Columbia, MD is participating in the Global Day of Coderetreat 2012!
Coderetreat (http://coderetrea...) is a day-long, intensive practice

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!
