Global Day of Coderetreat 2013

Please RSVP only on the EventBrite page

Reston, VA is participating in the Global Day of Coderetreat 2013!

Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event focused on the fundamentals of software development and design.The unique coderetreat format (which eliminates the pressure of 'getting things done' and focuses on practicing basic principles of good design) has proven to be a highly effective (and fun) means of skill improvement.

On December 14th, Coderetreats will be held at cities all over the world. To celebrate this significant event, we'll be participating in some global activities in addition to our normal Coderetreat activities.

You only need to bring a laptop with the development tools you require to write code using your chosen programming languages.

    I know this is a Ruby meetup, but is this event language agnostic?

    • Andrew W.

      Yes, Dan. It's very popular in the ruby community, but all languages are welcome, and there will be numerous languages represented. Last year we saw, at least, clojure, javascript, perl, and java. I think there were others, but I can't recall.

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.
