Hi folks,

We would like to welcome you to join us for the 10th anniversary of the Global Coderetreat that will happen on November 16th!

It will be a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design, away from the pressures of 'getting things done'. We will come together to practice techniques we use at Equal Experts like pair programming and TDD.

There will be facilitators to help everyone through the exercises. You should leave with a bit of a glimpse of how the practices feel like, so you can base your future opinions on the matter with your practical experience.

As we progress throughout the day, the exercises will become a bit more challenging in ways that you don't usually get when you're doing your normal day to day job.

We'll have laptops of our own but we'd like to ask you to bring yours with your favorite setup (tooling, language, etc), if possible, to save us some time.

For more information, please go to:

We look forward to coding with you!



You can use any programming language of your choice. Whichever you feel more comfortable with.

Please setup your computer beforehand to speed up the start of the event and make sure we can quickly get to the fun part :)
