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. The most common ones are the Scala IDE in Eclipse and Intellij

Project information and code is being hosted on GitHub.

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.

    Hi all, great to see a full dojo tonight! Just a gentle reminder to update your RSVP to no if you realise you cannot make it, it will allow people on the waiting list to attend even if it's late in the day. See you tonight for some coding and pizza!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
