Join us on this coding dojo where we will use the Kake format. You will have the opportunity to practice your coding skills and improve your knowledge of TDD, pair-programming and continuous integration.
About Coding Dojos and the Kake format
“A Coding Dojo is a meeting where a bunch of coders get together to work on a programming challenge. They are there to have fun and to engage in Deliberate Practice in order to improve their skills.” — from codingdojo.org.
If it’s your first contact with coding dojos you may want to check the key principles.
The Kake format is not your regular projected-on-a-wall coding dojo. We will have three to four computers, where pairs will work in parallel and use TDD to solve a given problem, using different programming languages. You will assume three roles — pilot, co-pilot and audience — throughout a sequence of 7min iterations, where you will experience first hand the value of TDD, pair-programming and continuous integration.
