Details of NYC coderetreat can be found here:
Of the 50 participants that rsvp'ed to the event, about 25 showed up:
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?

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,

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…Continue

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…Continue

Our coderetreat in Indianapolis went very well - exceeded my expectations! Of course, it was my first time doing anything with coderetreat, and it was just me: hosting, facilitating, etc. so I really didn't know what to expect. :)
We had 17 people register for the event, and 13 of them showed up. I highly recommend charging a refundable fee to attend - I think it made a huge difference in helping provide that "psychic weight" for people when it came to attending or not. And on the…Continue

I hope you like it!

Our session was held in a training room that was perfect for the event; enough plug points, desks, a/c, projector, flip-chart, kitchen close-by etc which made things easier. Originally 16 people had registered; 2 had cancelled beforehand because of other commitments and 1 did not pitch, so we were left with 13 which was a good showing. We had 6 pairs with one pair consisting of three. 11 of the developers were C# developers, while 2 were using python. Most of the attendees were…Continue
