What we're about

We are a meeting place for everyone who deeply cares about software development. We are a group of professionals who want to share their knowledge and learn from each other.

Software Craftsmanship Berlin aka Softwerkskammer Berlin is part of the Softwerkskammer.org network of other local Software Craftsmanship Communities. Our movement is inspired by the Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship:

"As aspiring Software Craftsmen we are raising the bar of professional software development by practicing it and helping others learn the craft. Through this work we have come to value:

* Not only working software, but also well-crafted software

* Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value

* Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals

* Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships

That is, in pursuit of the items on the left we have found the items on the right to be indispensable"

Upcoming events (4+)

Global Day of Code Retreat

Online event

## What?
This is a 1-day event being held all around the world (http://coderetreat.org/). A Coderetreat is a full day hands-on coding workshop focused on the fundamentals of software development, design and communication. During the day you get multiple chances to try something completely different. You have the opportunity to learn new ways of testing, paradigms, architecture styles, libraries, approaches, languages or IDEs.

## Where
The event will be held remotely via Google Meet.

## Who?
We welcome contributors of all possible backgrounds. We believe that more perspectives mean more insights and can teach us different approaches.

This event will be held in an inclusive and safe environment. By joining this event, you agree to our values (https://github.com/swkBerlin/values/blob/master/safe_environment.md).

We welcome people of all experience levels from all disciplines related to software development - testers, Scrum Masters and also Product Owners usually learn a lot.

## How?
The unique coderetreat format eliminates the pressure of 'getting things done' and focuses on practicing fundamental principles of good design. The workshop is split into sessions à 45 minutes - TDD, pair programming and clean code will be practiced throughout the day. Most sessions will have additional constraints to present new challenges and make you leave your comfort zone.

## How Much?
The Coderetreat is free.

## What Else?
We will use https://cyber-dojo.org/ as dev environment and https://miro.com/ to facilitate discussions. Please set up a Miro account beforehand. If you want, feel free to familiarize yourself with the tools before the event. We will also explain it for everyone during the day.
You might also have noticed that this event is exactly one week after the "official" Global Day of Code Retreat. This is by design to allow more people to participate who might not be available on that specific date.

## Facilitators
Our organizer Daniel Bartholomae (https://twitter.com/the_startup_cto) will facilitate the Coderetreat.

## Sponsors
We'd like to kindly thank optilyz for sponsoring the event this year:
