"Haha! Sounds reasonable - I'll give the "better code" approach a try ;-) Thanks"

"I used to also ask participants to write "Perfect Code," when I facilitated a coderetreat, but I've since changed to asking participants to try to write "better code" rather than "Perfect Code." I found asking…"

"no that is a misunderstanding. we use to change pairs each session. However, you get a feeling about the skill level of your participants when you watch them during their sessions. When you see, that some pair is ready for more interesting…"

"Thanks. It seems like you keep the same pairs througout the retreat. I had them swap peers each iteration. Maybe that was one reason for the fuzz."

"Nobody writes perfect code. And I am with you when you say you don't want to prepare testcases or a GUI as this definitely would hinder creativity. In my retreats, I do not give any exercises in the first lesson, but only tell them to solve the…"

Perfect Code

In my introduction I put up a challenge to the participants to write the perfect code. But in practice no one actually wrote perfect code but was more concerned with solving the problem, fulfill the constraints or setup the environment. In the retrospective I was advised to prepare test cases and maybe a GUI to make the participants more focused on writing perfect code. But the downside is that I might limit the creativity and affect the solutions.Please share your view on the subject.See More

Alexander Marek replied to Pontus Bergöö's discussion Verbs instead of Nouns in the group Facilitators
"Hi! I am not a Scala guru at all nor a functional programming hero. So I might have rather the object oriented view on this subject. But for me "Verbs instead of Nouns" has a very clear learning target, which is that when you write code…"

Pontus Bergöö replied to Pontus Bergöö's discussion Verbs instead of Nouns in the group Facilitators
"Yes, that is perhaps an approach to take. Me and my group maybe was a little to rigid about the rule and interpreted it like no nouns are allowed what so ever. And that was very difficult. I see the words cell, neighbour, generation.  I'm…"

Marco Emrich replied to Pontus Bergöö's discussion Verbs instead of Nouns in the group Facilitators
"Hi Pontus, I don't have a perfect answer on that - but I can tell you what we did, when we got introduced to this constraint. Our idea was to separate value objects (like cell, board etc.) from the operations. And build service objects for…"

Verbs instead of Nouns

I have tried to introduce the activity "Verbs instead of Nouns" but it turned out to be a complete failure. I made the mistake to introduce it without trying it out myself. I put my faith that one of the Scala gurus of the group should come up with great ideas and a solution, but he didn't. Could anybody give me a clue of how a solution could look like.See More
