How to find us

Coderetreats are run by volunteers who want to help out their local developer community. Hosts handle all of the logistics, and facilitators guide participants through the exercises.

The job of the host is to make sure the coderetreat runs smoothly by making sure everything is arranged. Hosts find a venue with all the necessary equipment, find a company to sponsor lunch, give away the prizes at the end of the day, organize video chats with other locations, etc.

This is a free training session for coderetreat hosts. If you host a coderetreat you might be interested in attending one training session. The trainers will explain what is the role of the host, tips and tricks for having an excellent coderetreat day. This training will be delivered online on Google Hangouts. Make sure you will be online five minutes before the training starts.

Your trainer will be Raimo Radczewski. Here is how Raimo describes himeself:

"I’m a self-employed Software Crafter from Berlin, Germany. I help companies build a culture suited to grow and empower people and have them enjoy their work. I also write a lot of code (mostly in JavaScript, React, Redux lately), am fond of Domain-Driven Design and an advocate for Test-Driven-Development.

I owe a lot to the communities out there, which is why I’m trying to give something back, by sharing my experience."

Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
