Scala Coding Dojo

A coding dojo is a meeting where a bunch of coders get together and work on a code kata, a programming challenge to improve their skills. They code, learn and have fun away from interruptions, distractions, deadlines and production bugs. A coding dojo provides a safe environment to discuss topics like design, functional programming, testing, refactoring, choice of code editors, tools, etc.

In this dojo we will do the “TDD as if you meant it” exercise as proposed by Keith Braithwaite. We will develop a real solution to a simple programming problem using a very strict interpretation of the practice of TDD and see where that leads us.

There is no need to bring your own notebook.

    Hi, I was just made aware of a coursera follow-up course to 'Functional Programming in Scala' named 'Principles of Reactive Programming'. Thought you might be interested.­

    From the history I see that many katas have been done already. Great! I would like to try sth. advanced, “TDD as if you meant it” InfoQ has some slides on that we can use to get started:­

    I had to move the coding dojo by one week. Peter will facilitate.

    @Alex/Andreas, as I am around, I offer to facilitate. Maybe Andreas wants to participate once instead of facilitating. I am experimenting with different styles because I have been invited to facilitate DOJOS at Agile Testing Days (Germany) and need some spice up ;-)

    This is just an offer, if Andreas wants to keep his track record of facilitating his 12th? Dojo, this is also sth cool to support ;-) Just tell me in advance.
