The Lean Code Challenge

What does it mean for the very code we write to be lean? What can we as coders draw from processes surrounding Lean software development? What exactly is waste and what isn't?

In this session the challenge will be to build a brand new piece of software for a demanding customer. Form a team of 2-4 people and try and satisfy requirements as quickly as you can. Demonstrate working software as soon as you finish them to your stakeholders and receive the next set, and try and get through as many as you can within the time period.

At the end of the session we'll be discussing what waste there was in our process and what got in the way of delivering, and how we can maximise value in the shortest space of time.  

Requirements: Bring a laptop + a language of your choice. You will need to be able to write a program which reads from standard input and writes to standard output. Work will be done in pairs, so you can always come along work with someone else if you don't have a development environment set up.

Thanks Javier Gamarra (@nhpatt) for running this session.

    ¡Hola chicos! Según he leído la descripción de la actividad me parece fantástica. Lo único que me resulta imposible estar antes de las 19:30. ¿Existiría la posibilidad de hacerlo, por ejemplo, un sábado por la mañana?
    ¡Un abrazo fuerte!

      Yo creo que tambien se aprovecharia mas si fuera el sabado por la mañana. La gente esta mas descansada y podemos hacer varias horas

      Las fechas las decide siempre quien facilite el taller que bastante curro se pega ya ;). Para futuras convocatorias lo podemos tener en cuenta pero conseguir la sala de sábado también es más complejo.
