What we're about

What does it take to become great at something? Hard work, right? Then you might also agree that it takes lots of practice too. This meetup aims to help members become better at coding through code katas. You are now probably wondering what a kata is. Kata is a Japanese term that refers to individual training exercises for practitioners of karate. A code kata, therefore, is an exercise for practitioners of code. A kata, in any sense, aims to help individuals improve their ability through structured exercises. This group strives to do just that for coders who seek to level up their problem-solving skills with code katas from Code Wars, Code Fights, Exercism, and Free Code Camp, just to name a few.

As a base, we use the Free Code Camp algorithm challenges to start but this group is not limited to that curriculum. Our hope is that this group expands and grows to solve not only other katas found on the web but in other languages too!

Come one, come all, and let's see how we can improve one code kata at a time!

Code Katas w/ Seattle JS Hackers [Virtual]

Online event

I enjoyed the Code Katas so much in Florida, I brought it to the Seattle, WA area. If you happen to be in the area come join us for some fun coding challenges. Please RSVP with Seattle JS Hackers Meet Up group. https://www.meetup.com/seattlejshackers/events/ Welcome to Code Katas [Virtual] This event will be held through Zoom and Slack. What are Code Katas? --------------------- Code Katas are a fun way to do coding exercises, in *any* language you want. It's a good practice to keep increasing your skills as a coder. You can practice the same kata over and over to continue improving, get feedback from others, and move on to more difficult problems to solve. This will be a structured event where we will present the kata, and how to practice them, then everyone works to solve the problem on your own computer, get help from neighbors and mentors, and see how others solve the same problem! What to bring --------------------- - something to code on, such as a laptop (wireless internet is available) - there will be light snacks, and beverages though you may want to bring something more (no alcohol allowed at this venue) - we will be posting information in our slack channel #katas, so make sure to join, the invite link is at the bottom of http://seattlejshackers.com - a positive attitude Timeline --------------------- 5:30 - code ninjas arrive and socialize 5:50 - intro, present format and prep 6:00 - round 1 - warm up 6:30 - round 2 - challenge yourself! 7:30 - round 3 - final round 8:30 - wrap up About Seattle JS Hackers --------------------- We organize coding sessions at venues in Seattle each week. Our sessions encourage peer ideation, knowledge sharing, new champions for causes and projects, and a heightened sense of community. If you have a cool project, work on it with us! What if I'm a novice? --------------------- This is a perfect time to start your code ninja career! We have a wide range of experience levels, and some of us love to teach (because you usually learn something when you teach, right?) So don't be afraid. Come on over. Code of Conduct --------------------- Seattle JS Hackers is a space for judgement-free learning and collaboration. We seek to support and encourage our members in a positive way; even negative feedback should be offered constructively and with respectful words. Please feel free to share your experiences with others (e.g., product, company, passion, recruitment opportunity) if asked, but save your sales pitches for other events.
