Global Day of Coderetreat in NYC
Saturday, December 3, 2011 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design.
- Practicing skills that you want to work on (TDD, modular design, DRY Principle, etc.)
- Pair programming with your peers from the NYC area
- Freedom to program in whichever languages you want
- Free lunch
What you should bring:
- A laptop pre-configured with your favorite development environment (for whichever language(s) you like)
How it works:
The challenge is to implement Conway's Game of Life using a test-driven approach in whatever programming language you choose. Pairs will work together in 45 minute iterations. At the end of each iteration one person swaps with another pair and all code is deleted. The new pair then try to make a better solution based on their experiences.
