A Coderetreat is not a palm-tree lined beach resort, where we code sipping a pina-colada. It is an event, where software developers gather to practice their coding skills and learn from each other during a fun-filled day. We work on the same coding challenge practicing basic principles of good design. It's a retreat to get in touch with your coding brain to refresh it with new ideas in a stress-free friendly environment. Be part of the "Global Day of Code Retreat" with coderetreats taking place all over the world.
How does it work?
A coderetreat is a daylong event, focused on practicing the basic principles of good design without the pressure of having to get things done. The day is split into six sessions, in which you work on the same problem over and over again. In each session you will pair with a different programmer to maximize the knowledge transfer. The important thing is that after each session all the code that has been written so far is deleted. This gives you the chance in the next session to all start over again without being constrained by any design decisions you made in the previous one. The combination of pair programming with the focus on writing perfect code instead of solving the problem gives you a unique opportunity to improve your skills.
