Scala Coding Dojo


A regular coding dojo session run on every third Thursday of the month.  The dojo is now held regularly at the new central London offices of Springer.


6.00pm Socialise, eat pizza, discuss this evenings problem
6.30pm Split into groups and start the dojo proper
8.00pm Show and tell - discuss what was learnt
8.30pm Pub - TBD

Our approach to the dojo

The coding dojo splits everyone up into groups of 3 to 5 people, grouping more experience users with those starting out to ensure everyone is able to take part and achieve something.

The session starts at 6.30pm when we choose topics and split into groups. Please be here before 6.30pm.

The session runs until 8.30pm, stoping around 8.00pm to allow each group to talk about their ideas and approaches to solving the set problem.  A problem is chosen on the night of each event by the group, usually from a list of ideas the group suggested.

If you can, please bring a laptop with you with a Scala development environment ready to use. The most common ones are the Scala IDE in Eclipse and Intellij

Project information and code is being hosted on GitHub.

If you have any comments, please add them on the site. If you want to discuss things in more detail you can start a thread in the messages tab of the lsug-dojo site.

    The book some of you mentioned, is it titled "Functional Programming in Scala" (Chiusano, Bjarnason)?

    I think I have come up with an alternative method. Would anyone like a look?

      Clever choice of data type. I also learned the Boolean type has && (logical AND w/shortcut) and & (w/o shortcut).

    I guess the meetup suffered the rescheduling, but the handful of attendants stayed until the end. Good to meet you all.
