Our approach to the dojo The coding dojo is very loosely defined and largely participation driven. Topics for the evening will be decided by the participants. We will split everyone up into groups of 3 to 5 people, trying to group more experience users with those starting out to ensure everyone is able to take part and achieve something. A problem is chosen on the night of each event by the group, usually from a list of ideas the group suggested.
The session runs until 9pm, stopping around 8.30pm to allow each group to talk about their ideas and approaches to solving the set problem.
If you can, please bring a laptop with some R environment ready to use.
