AgileWorks - Software craftsmanship: Coding Dojo & Code retreat - Timisoara

Software craftsmanship manifesto - "Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals"

You can read on about Software craftsmanship, Coding Dojo & Code retreat: (partially in Romanian, partially in English :) ).

Agile is about quality, results and learning. Software developers are proud of their code, but there is always something that can be done better (if we look in a honest way to our software applications). Code retreat is a fast-learning technique 'invented' by software craftsmanship movement (derived from XP). How we will work? We will solve a problem, in pairs, on the same computer, one hour iterations. After each hour the code is completely deleted and the solving is re-done. The purpose is to learn&practice various programming techniques.

What you have to bring: a laptop, your pair-for-programming, the programming-mood

Don't worry about the language, you&your pair can use any language you are comfortable with. Just be sure the laptop has the tools installed and functional for the chosen programming language.

Duration: from 10:30 am to 19:00 pm (if too tired, we can stop earlier)

We will share best practices, learn and practice together better programming techniques while being relaxed, drinking beers and having fun :).

Cheers, Maria Diaconu
