Mini-code-retreat

2 sessions of code retreat
Should take about 2+ hrs

Please bring laptop with configured environment for your language of choice.

Consider brushing up on TDD framework.

Coderetreat has an established, time-tested format that is optimized for focused practice.

Problem: Conway's Game of Life
Length of Session: 45 minutes
Duration: 8.30am to 5 or 6pm
Pair-programming is necessary, as the knowledge transfer contained in that activity is essential to the practice
Prefer using Test-Driven Development (TDD)
After each session, pairs should be swapped
After each session, code must be deleted, not put in a branch, not stashed, just deleted with no trace left

    Does Coffee Club there have power points? I can bring my laptop, but I'm afraid the battery life barely makes one hour! :-(

      Don't know, we will be first time there. Usually they do have. In any case one hour should be enough.
