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 the Assembla.com site (a bit like bitbucket, github, etc). You can view more information about lsug-dojo and the projects being tackled and also get a copy of the dojo code from the assembla git repository.

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.

    A different approach this time around lead to an even better dojo for all. We took a larger problem and chopped it up in to dojo sized pieces and each team chose a component to do. I felt it added to the co-operation and communication to the dojo.

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.
