Kudos for the Global Day of Coderetreat

As last year I helped the coderetreat first-time facilitators to jump-in and organize their first coderetreat. I had some training sessions on Google Hangout during which I talked with a lot of passionate professionals from all over the world. Together with me Jim Hurne had done the same effort to spread his knowledge about the way he facilitates a coderetreat.

Jim has done a lot of work for the Global Day, he added the sessions on the…

Insights from Sweden/Umeå

When Umeå Java User Group participated in GDCR2012, it was our third Code Retreat setup. This time we feel we have got the hang of it!

There were twelve participants with quite diverse programming backgrounds, and during the day we got to stretch our minds to identify the weak and strong spots of our individual crafts.

At the last retrospective we discussed a number of more or less personal insights gained during the day.

  • The craft of programming is not only…

Code Retreat Cambridge

Code Retreat Cambridge

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a Global Day of Code Retreat event held at Red Gate, Cambridge hosted by the local software craftsmanship group.

The format of the day is to solve the same problem a number of times with different constraints each time. Each problem is solved as a pair and generally uses test-driven development. After the end of each session, the code was thrown away. Although this might seem a little strange, it meant you couldn't… Continue

Global Day of Code Retreat in Amsterdam

Yesterday I traveled through the cold over icy pavements to the office of Mirabeau in Amsterdam to join my fellow coding enthusiasts for a day of mad coding. There I was joined by about twenty others and even eight children. The younger children set out to learn the Scratch programming language, while the older ‘kids’ went off to play with the game of life. For them (including me) the day was divided into iterations of about 45 minutes. In our first iteration we attempted…
