Join us for the Winnipeg chapter of the Global Day of Coderetreat!
What is a Coderetreat?
• Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
This is not a class where we teach pair programming or TDD but it most definitely is a rich opportunity to experiment with and practice these techniques.
We will start early on Saturday, October 22nd and go until about 4:30 or 5pm and food will be provided. It may sound like a long day but every year the day goes surprisingly fast.
Hope to see you there!
