Scala Coding Dojo

A regular coding dojo session run on every third Thursday of the month.  The dojo is now held regularly at the central London offices of TIM Group.


6.00pm Socialise, eat pizza, discuss this evenings problem
7.00pm Split into groups and start the dojo proper
8.30pm Show and tell - discuss what was learnt
9.00pm Pub - The Telegraph

Our approach to the dojo

The coding dojo spilts everyone up into groups of 3 to 5 people, grouping more experience users with those starting out to ensure everyone is able to take part and achieve something.

The session runs until 9pm, stoping around 8.30pm to allow each group to talk about their ideas and approaches to solving the set problem.  A problem is chosen on the night of each event by the group, usually from a list of ideas the group suggested.

If you can, please bring a laptop with you with a Scala development environment ready to use.

Project information and code is being hosted on GitHub. You can view more information about lsug-dojo and the projects being tackled and also get a copy of projects that have been worked on.

If you have any comments, please add them on the site. If you want to discuss things in more detail you can start a thread in the messages tab of the lsug-dojo site.



There are several vacancies at TIM Group currently - most relevant we're looking for a Senior Developer/Team Leader, ideally with Scala experience. See for details. Feel free to come to the dojo to have an informal chat about the company and how it is to work here if you are interested in the role.

    because of issues with my laptop, our presentation might not have been very clear (sorry for that), but i summarised in a gist what we were talking about with Neil: i hope it makes a bit more sense this way :)

    Which version of Scala are you using? the instructions mention 2.8.1 but they are written in 2010.

    Sorry, can't make it again. The commute from Slough is pretty much a deal-breaker when I have stuff to take care of in the evening.
