Welcome to the Global Day of Coderetreat in Munich on Saturday November 16th at ThoughtWorks Munich!

On Saturday, November 16th, Coderetreats will be held in cities around the world for the 2019 Global Day of Coderetreat, uniting software developers in their quest for improvement. It also happens to be the 10 year anniversary of this format. Write code, learn from others, teach someone else, and expand your network of friends who are passionate about their craft. Software developers of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome!

What to Bring: Please bring your laptop with your favorite development tools (IDE, version control) and a unit test framework, everything else is provided.

Background: Coderetreat is a worldwide pattern designed to hone software skills and design practices through repeated attempts to build an implementation of a well-known software problem (for example Conway's Game of Life). Unit testing and Test-Driven Development will be emphasized as key practices. Developers use pair programming and discussion to exchange knowledge, and additional constraints are given throughout the day to emphasize good design concepts and practices.

Code of Conduct: We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, programming language, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof). And so we invite all those who participate in our event to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone. Therefore please:
Be welcoming, friendly, and patient.
Be respectful. Not all of us will agree with each other all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack.
Be aware of the effect your words may have on others. We are a community of professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other participants. Harassment and other exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable.

Agenda: We will open the doors at 8:30am and offer a little breakfast until we will start the program at 9:30am. Lunch, coffee and beverages will be provided, so you will be able to concentrate on coding the whole day. There will be three sessions in the morning and three sessions after lunch. The official program will end around 5:00pm.
