Wellington - Global Day of Code Retreat

  • Dec 8, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

On the back of the huge success of the Auckland Code Retreat, Wellington will get its very own (and possibly very first) Code Retreat.

So what is Code Retreat

"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 meetup going to be part of the great Global Day of Code Retreat 2012 #gdcr12

The event will be free and open to all - subject to our ability to raise enough sponsorship $$ to fund it! The first Auckland event cost us ~$50/head + GST. If you can help in this area at all, we would love to hear from you!

So spread the word, and come hang out and practice your craft with us on Global Day of Code Retreat!

Cheers, Amy and Martin

    It was an excellent day, really well run. I think it was a great group of people, and enjoyed everyone I worked with. Also think it was good we got people sharing in the end-of-exercise retrospectives which helped us get more out of it.

      I also liked the constraints and trashing solution at the end. I will use both in our internal dojo sessions.

    Sorry I couldn't hang around for the beer afterwards - too many things I wanted to do this Saturday, but I'm glad I chose to attend the Code Retreat, it was a great learning experience.
