Scala Coding Dojo

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

Please dont go to Thoughtworks as no one will let you in 

Schedule
6.00pm Socialise, eat pizza, discuss this evenings problem
7.00pm Split into groups and start the dojo proper
8.30pm Show and tell - discuss what was learnt
9.00pm Pub - The Telegraph


Our approach to the dojo

The coding dojo spilts 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 runs until 9pm, stoping around 8.30pm 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.

Project information and code is being hosted on GitHub. You can view more information about lsug-dojo and the projects being tackled and also get a copy of projects that have been worked on.

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

    Is this a good meeting for total scala beginners?

      Hey Antonio - sorry for the late reply. The dojo is intended for all levels of scala expertise. We try to balance things slightly in the groups and note that there might be more "advanced" topics that you might want to avoid first time around. So feel welcome, and ask loads of questions!

      Thanks Sergiusz. Unfortunately I won't make it this time, but I'll definitely try to be there for the next one. Thanks for your reply.

    Changed the date of this meetup to the second Thursday in May due to me being on a business trip at the standard time of the Dojo.
