Global Day of Coderetreat 2018


On Saturday, November 17th, 2018, thousands of developers all over the globe will honor their craft, share knowledge, and practice by “playing our instruments behind the scenes” to learn from each other. All events around the world and coordinated at site .

As nicely explained on site, a code retreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. This FREE event gives the opportunity to learn and to practice TDD, Clean Code and Refactoring for a whole day. This isn’t a conference! Rules are totally different, attendees take actively part in the coding experience: act a lot, listen very little.

Our local event is hosted and sponsored by ConSol Consulting & Solutions Software GmbH,


A Coderetreat is meant to be a safe space to learn and explore. We will work in pairs on katas so if possible, bring your laptop with a running IDE, unit test and mocking framework in the programming language of your choice. Also an installed version control systems like Git is recommended.


We will open the doors at 8:30am and offer a little breakfast until we will start the program at 9:00am. Lunch, coffee and beverages will be provided, so you will be able to concentrate on coding the whole day. We will have three sessions in the morning and three sessions after lunch. The official programm will end between about 5:00 and 6:00pm.

Code of Conduct
