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.

    As promised here's a few resources I mentioned last night:

    Functional Programming Principles in Scala taught by Martin Odersky (creator of Scala) just started this week, you're not too late. Comes highly recommended.

    London Meetup for the course above:
    Every Tuesday at the British Library, 6:30 to 8.

    I also mentioned the London Python Dojo I help organise, which is next Thursday. There's officially no tickets left, but we always get cancellations so drop me an email/tweet if you'd like to come. All abilities most welcome. My details are tom [at] viner [dot] tv and @tomviner. Follow for details.

    Hi all,
    I've created the dojo repo for this Dojo here:

    Suggested workflow is
    1. Fork the repo
    2. Add a folder describing the task your team is working on
    3. Create pull request when you have completed the task

    Is this good for people who have very little Scala experience and just started to learn it?

    March 22, 2013

    • Sergiusz B.

      Yes, the dojo is intended for all levels of scala experience. We try to mix groups so there is a good balance.

    Hello everyone

    I'm afraid I will have to post-pone this meetup for a week. A TIM Group event is occurring the same night and it is likely there will be contention for the meeting rooms.

    Apologies for the late notice! I just came back from holidays and this was scheduled just last week. I hope you can all make it next Thursday!
