Upcoming events (4+)

ONLINE - Coding Dojo/TDD with Ensemble/Paired Programming

Link visible for attendees

All experience levels welcome!

Attendees are welcome to engage at the level they're most comfortable with as part of an Ensemble Programming Group(*): Writing code in a shared environment, providing ideas and suggestions, following along and asking questions, or any combination of the above.

(More details about the specific programming exercise and language(s) used will be provided closer to the event date)

( * Ensemble Programming is a newer, friendlier name for "Mob Programming", a social programming technique for planning, writing, and learning about code in a group setting.)

Schedule (Eastern Time):

6:45 PM: Setup (for Attendees who'd like to actively code)
7:00 PM: Begin tonight's exercise
8:00 PM: (Break)
8:15 PM : Continue exercise
9:00 PM: Wrap up and further discussion

This remote event will happen over Zoom - If you'd like to actively write code with us, you should sign up for a free GitPod account:

https://gitpod.io/workspaces/

Which will allow for collaborative code editing in a browser-based VSCode editor. (You will need a GitLab, GitHub, or Bitbucket account - also available for free - to sign in to GitPod - Using a GitHub account is recommended. You do not need to share any of your own repositories with GitPod, as one will be provided for tonight's exercise.)
