• April 2018 - Trading Card Game Kata
    Show your code! We'll be discussing the various solutions to the Trading Card Game kata. In this Kata you will be implementing a rudimentary two-player trading card game. The rules are loosely based on Blizzard's Hearthstone which itself is an already much simpler and straight-forward game compared to other TCGs like Magic: The Gathering.

  • Open Mic
    Join us for our November meetup where we will give everyone 5-10 minutes to talk about a particular project or piece of code that they've been working on recently. This can be anything - something you're learning, something you're stuck on, something interesting you've done. Bonus points will be awarded if it involves beer and/or bacon. We will also use this time to discuss a topic for our December meetup. Hop in http://slack.agnostechvalley.com to discuss what we're doing.

    This event was canceled.
  • ZeroMQ Rock/Paper/Scissors­
    In honor of Pieter Hintjens (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pieter_Hintjens), who passed away this month, lets use ZeroMQ (http://zeromq.org/) with the language of your choice to play some rock/paper/scissors. Then we can pit our programs against each other and see who wins! You can read the rules over on GitHub: https://github.com/agnostechvalley/katas/tree/master/2016-10 If there are any holes in the rules then let us know!
