Coderetreat: The toughest constraint

Posted on November 19, 2014 at 7:58am 0 Comments

Ask the attendees what they want

During the Global Day of Coderetreat 2014 (GDCR) I facilitated the event in Turku, Helsinki. That is when I presented the toughest constraint ever in any coderetreats I facilitated until now.

Since I have a lot of constraints in the list, some time ago I started to ask the attendees how difficult would they want the constraints to be. I am asking them on scale from 1 to 5, 1 being boring, and 5 being…


The History of "Brutal Refactoring Game"

Last year I was thinking about a session during which attendees would learn how to focus on refactoring. I had some thoughts about this: we would need a list of coding smells, and have some cards to give the attendees that had that coding smells in their code. Now the obvious question was: how can you have coding smells if you do not have a code base? I thought about it, and then I figured it out: during coderetreats I anyway see legacy code after 10-15 minutes. So if this session would take…

I wrote a post on the history of Taking Baby Steps, you can read it here.

Because this is how programmer mistakes appear in the code; some people tell them bugs. The other thing I am interested in is to have an undo button…


The history of "Taking Baby Steps"

Let me tell you a story on how I thought about teaching other programmers how to take small steps to help them minimize the mistakes by focusing on a small thought.

A couple of years ago I was working on a legacy project, meaning I did not know anything about the business, and it was written in Delphi .Net which was totally unknown to me. I needed to translate this medium-sized code-base from Delphi .Net into .Net / Silverlight.

All the team was using a centralized source…
