Global Day of Code Retreat

Location image of event venue


This is the 10th Anniversary of Global Day of Code Retreat!

Code Retreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design, away from the pressures of 'getting things done'.

The event consists of a series of 45 minute rounds during which participants pair up an to program Conways Game of Life. Afterwards we reflect on the process and all code that was produced that round. To make things interesting, each round introduces a new rule designed to encourage you to find new approaches to solving the problems.
