Come join us on November 14th in Honolulu's fifth year participating in the Global Day of Coderetreat :)

This event is language agnostic (not just ruby!) and intended for intermediate to advanced developers of any language looking to improve their level of software development, design and craft.

The venue is being provided by HTDC (http://htdc.org)

Coffee, pastries, drinks snacks and lunch are being sponsored by Real Geeks (http://www.realgeeks.com/)! They are a great local company and are hiring Python, ReactJS, Salesforce/Java developers and Sales.

Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Last year, on November 15th, 2014, over 2000 developers in 150 cities through 20 time zones dedicated the day to practicing their craft during the Global Day of Coderetreat 2014. You can find out more information about the day on the 2015 global day announcement. http://coderetreat.org/profiles/blogs/ready-for-the-2015-global-edition

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.

For an in-depth understanding of the philosophy behind a day of coderetreat, please watch the introduction in this video http://coderetreat.org/about and check out his book on the subject Understanding the Four Rules of Simple Design (https://leanpub.com/4rulesofsimpledesign)

Registration is open! You can RSVP at any time :)
