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.

Schedule
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 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.

    One group on the night introduced us all to a site where you can upload your solutions to various coding problems and you gain rank etc as you successfully complete each. I liked that you could submit solutions for multiple languages.

    Can anyone remember what the name of the site was?

      Oh man, I love exercism.io. I'm called thesunneversets there if anyone wants to look me up (and comment on my Scala word-count exercise! 9 weeks with no nitpicks and counting...)

    Thanks everyone for attending tonight. Unlike some previous nights it looks like we made some good progress on the problems! I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and thanks to TIMGroup for hosting.

    Is everyone's attending so the waiting list can eventually attend?

    This sounds like a great idea, I take it space is quite limited though looking at the growing waitlist? Maybe next month!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
