Location image of event venue


On Saturday, November 16th, 2019, 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 This year we celebrate the 10nth anniversary of Global Day of Code Retreat. We do so taking a new kata (yes, no game-of-life this year) and practicing the technique of Example Mapping during the first session which gives us the foundation for the whole day.

This FREE workshop gives the opportunity to learn and to practice BDD, ATDD, TDD, Clean Code, and Refactoring. This isn’t a conference! Rules are totally different, attendees take actively part in the coding experience: act a lot, listen very little. All levels of coding experience are welcome.

Our local event is hosted and sponsored by Austin Fraser GmbH with their very nice location at Stachus in the heart of Munich,


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 system like Git is recommended.


We will open the doors at 8:30 am and offer a little breakfast until we will start the program at 9:00 am. 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 program will end between about 5:00 and 6:00 pm.
