This year another swiss location opened for the GLOBAL DAY OF CODE RETREAT. we invite coders to have a day of fun in Bern. Event starts @ 10am and ends up 8 hours later…. For food and drinks DV Bern AG is taking care, so bring yourself, your laptop and your free mind!
What is it?
To put it short, it's a day of fun (aka pair programming) for coders. For details, see the site of the Coderetreat Community Network. Quoting from there:
"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."
"The coderetreat day consists of 5-6 sessions, each session's learnings building upon previous sessions. The morning focuses on becoming comfortable with the problem domain, breaking old habits and beginning focused self-discovery. The afternoon pushes the envelope by challenging pairs to stretch their skills and understanding of abstractions, modular design and test-driven development."
Where Is It?
Global Day of Coderetreat 2015 aka #GDCR15 will take place in (what's most likely to be) about 150 cities worldwide on Saturday, November 14th
Besides Bern, there is also an event in Zurich and in St. Gallen.
