Every day of the week you write code for money. Meet up on a Saturday and write code for you.
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of 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 basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
The Coderetreat (http://coderetreat.org/) format was invented by Corey Haines. This session will be facilitated by Johannes Brodwall, who facilitated a very well received Coderetreat in December.
Lunch will be served - Thanks to JavaBin who are paying for this!
Breakfast and second lunch will be served - Thanks to Iterate for sponsoring this.
As our sponsors are paying for the food for those that attend, it's very important that you let us know if you can't make it after all.
Bring your own laptop with the development environment for the programming languages of your choice.
