Global Day of Coderetreat Melbourne 2016
About the Event
Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Last year, over 2000 passionate software developers in 150 cities around the world spent the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format.
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
For an in-depth understanding of the philosophy behind a day of coderetreat, please watch this introduction video.
