Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Last year, over 2000 passionate software developers in 150 cities around the world spent the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format. This year, our goal is to have 200 participating cities! With an average of 20-25 participants per city, that's over 3000 developers! You can find out more information about the day on the 2013 global day announcement.

We held this last year and it was an excellent day, come and join us again!

    Thanks for a fun day yesterday, if you're interested in more practice I just found these http://codekata.pragprog.com/2007/01/code_kata_backg.html#more, and exercism.io is very good.

    Had an amazing time doing some of the most crazy and fun programming of my life. Thanks to our hosts, who kept us both laughing and swearing at the same time. Can't wait for next time!

    I'm at the Xero building and I haven't seen anyone else and can't get in?

    December 14, 2013

    • Amy

      Did you get in

    Another question guys: do we need to take care of our internet connection or there will be a xero guest wifi available? (sorry if it was already asked and answered before, I missed it then)

    December 13, 2013

    • Martin H.

      yup there will be internet available

    I unfortunately have a meeting in the afternoon of this. Is there any chance that I could only do a half day? Perhaps only three of the six sessions? Or would it be best that I simply don't come at all, due to it disrupting the balance of developers available for partner switching?

    Cheers

    In case you missed the email .... When!

    The day will be kicking off at 9am sharp and doors will be open from 8.30 .Please try to arrive before 9am :)

    Where!

    The Xero Offices

    What!

    You will need a laptop with a development environment of some kind installed. This includes git, or your source control system of choice! We will be using it.

    It would also be helpful if you had some unit testing frameworks and associated tooling installed too.

    After!

    The day will be done and dusted by about 5pm. We will be heading to Hashigo Zake afterwards.

    Hey guys is anyone else from Xero attending this? I may need to back out as something has come up on that day and I don't currently have a laptop. However I agreed to chaperon in the office so if I absolutely need to be there I will be.

      Yep, it'd be cool if you could make it though.

    Guys, could you actually shed some light about what we need to bring and something about format? I remember when I applied it was a question about preferable technology. Have you made a final decision on that?

    December 9, 2013

    • Amy

      Group email incoming - should explain all. Let us know if you have anymore questions. See you on the weekend :)
