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.

Please dont go to Thoughtworks as no one will let you in

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.

Join or login to comment.

    The meetup got me motivated to continue playing further with scala / akka. Hopefully by the next one I'll have a better grip on scala. So far it has been very slow progress.

    I'll share the code on github.

    Here's an event that people might be interested in. It's being run by the google developers group to encourage collaboration between designers and developers. There is also a focus on women, as google is looking for to encourage more women to join the google womens developer group and to attend hack days.

    Thanks all for coming last night!
    If you'd like to share the code with the group please create a pull request to the lsug github account. I created a repository here: .

    Steps to add the code:
    1. Fork the repository.
    2. Add the code you want to add. Create a base directory named after the project you worked on.
    3. Create a pull request and I'll add it to the repo.

    Look forward to seeing you in February!
