  • Swift Puzzle Evening 👩‍💻👨‍💻

    Expedia / Hotels.com

    HELLO ALL Our third in a series of Swift puzzle nights, this month Wojciech Rutkowski (https://twitter.com/WojRutkowski) is the puzzler in residence. 🎩 An evening to exercise your Swift skills, and learn new tricks, with the mutual support of friends and colleagues. If you're not familiar with the concept of coding 'dojos', here's a handy blog post (https://code.joejag.com/2009/the-coding-dojo.html) that describes them well. Working in pairs of mixed experience, we try to solve a Swift puzzle, then we pause to compare our results. The problem will be revealed on the day, as a Swift Playground, so just bring your laptop, Xcode 9, and a detective hat (optional). This is a Swift 4 exercise. Dojos work best when we have an even mix of experienced and junior developers, everyone is welcome. 🏡 Hosted by Hotels.com (https://lifeatexpedia.com/brands/hotels-com/) All our events follow a Code of Conduct (http://www.meetup.com/swiftlondon/pages/Code_of_Conduct_%7C_Safe_Spaces), and you should too.
