Refactoring Code Retreat is simple: We invite a group of programmers together for a day, give them some legacy code, and help them practise various design rescue and improvement techniques. The ultimate goal is to practise these techniques in a low-stakes environment away from the code base that probably torments programmers at work. It is now possible for programmers of over a dozen different programming languages to practise rescuing legacy code.
This event will be held on the Saturday the 16th of August at the offices of realestate.com.au (REA) in Richmond Melbourne.
Please note breakfast and lunch will be provided.
The event will hosted at the REA Group offices in North Richmond. The address is: 678 Victoria St, Richmond VIC 3121, Australia.
Due to the host requirements you will be asked to sign a simple NDA upon arrival. The NDA is in relation to us using a work space which may contain REA sensitive information, not about the things covered during the Code Retreat.
To get to the REA office, hop on the 109 tram from the city going to Box Hill or jump off the train at North Richmond Station then catch the 109 tram down Victoria Street.
There also is a car park available below the REA building ( approx 4$ for 8 hours )
