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 meetup.com site. If you want to discuss things in more detail you can start a thread in the messages tab of the lsug-dojo site.
