Toronto Code Retreat is a Meetup group focused on learning and sharing software craftsmanship and testing practices with your peers. Meetups will be held in the style of a Code Retreat, which involves pair programming live with other group members using different programming languages. Sessions will focus on attempts to solve Conway's Game of Life. Locations will alternate between Toronto and Mississauga. We intend to hold the sessions the 2nd Thursday of each month.
