Let's do a Kata together
We want to try and incorporate a Kata into the Hack Evening as an option for those who are looking for something to do!
A Kata is a small programming exercise, meant to improve your skills in solving coding problems. Training with these exercises can help during interviews and build of your confidence overall.
You will have the option to work alone or to pair up - a chance to practice pair coding at the same time!
Stay tuned - the selected Kata will be announced in the event!
