Global day of Coderetreat: the Belgian edition

First of all I would like to thank my facilitation counterpart Adrian Bolboaca for all our coderetreats. I'm glad to be able to team up with this guy everytime.

We had loads of people joining us with a lot of new guys in the group that were new to TDD and pair programming as well. "Tdd as if you meant it" had a really big impact on a couple of the newbies which was a bit of a surprise for us. At the same time it was my personal highlight of…

We started at 9:30 am and our general plan for the day was the following:

1: get our feet wet and try to understand the problems

2: maybe try something other than 2D array?

3: focus on names during this session
4: think about working on exercises either super TDD or super OO.
5: go…

Global Day of Code Retreat - Vienna

In Vienna, we had 15 participants (of the 25 that registered).

In the first session, we did not induce any challanges, as expected. But, although I had a very clear plan about which exercises should be done in which session, I needed to change it for the simple reason, that the skill level of the participants varied a lot:

While some still had a problem in understanding GoL after the second

session, others already ping-pong'ed in the first one. Additionally,

they used…

Global Day of Coderetreat in Umeå, Sweden

12 people signed to the event in Umeå and 10 showed up, which is a 40% increase comparing to our first coderetreat. We had two women participating, which I think is really good for an event like this with it's geeky spirit. Even more amazing was the two guys from Skellefteå (130km north of Umeå and 90 minutes by car) that showed up at 8 am for breakfast and a days coding. Java, C# and C++ was the languages used during the day.
In the first session the only constraint we had…

global day of code retreat in Calgary

Organizing the event

- I contacted professor at University of Calgary and they willing to sponsor for the event. So my lesson here is you need to know the right people and contact the right people then things will go smoothly for you. We need to sort out the few things like wireless for 20 people, food/beverages, etc ...

- I were worry that we don't get enough interested people. But thanks to COREY and OTHER PREVIOUS ORGANIZERS…

Global Day of Coderetreat: An Account from London

Here’s what you do. On Saturday morning, at ridiculous o’clock (i.e. around 8), you walk into a room which has a delicious breakfast all laid out. There are some people running about shouting at each other about “sessions” and “calls”, but you ignore them in favour of the sweet pastries, fresh fruit and hot coffee sitting on the counter. When you’re done, you take out your laptop, and someone with a funny haircut floats over to remind you that you should have a test environment set up for…
