Event description

Description

“Practice and improve your craft.”
Expand and deeply challenge your coding practices during this year's Global Day of CodeRetreat at SEEK on 17th November 2018.

Global Day of CodeRetreat
Coderetreat is a volunteer-based, globally coordinated effort to improve software developer's skills. In 2017
136 Global Day of Coderetreat events were held in cities all over the globe. Come and be part of the 2018 #gdcr in Melbourne!

So what exactly is a CodeRetreat?
CodeRetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers with the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done’ in our day-to-day product development, the CodeRetreat format has proven itself globally to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practising the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimises the cost of change over time.

What's in it for me?
A fun and challenging day where you will build on your coding skills and learn different approaches to the same problem, all the while collaborating with fellow Software Engineers of the Melbourne community. CodeRetreat is a great opportunity to meet, and learn from different developers. We will stretch your existing skills by various pairing and TDD challenges, extending your comfort zone, and learning new practices, all whilst keeping a focus on clean code.

What do I need for the workshop?
You'll need to bring along a laptop, with your preferred IDE installed, and setup with a running and functioning TDD framework for your preferred programming language. Please test this before you come along. Also have a version control system (e.g. git) ready to go. If you need any help in setting this up, please reach out!
