Event Details

What is a Code Retreat?

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.

This is a language-agnostic event. Each session, the pair chooses what language they want to work in. So, no matter what your language of choice, you are welcome. We practice the fundamentals: TDD and the 4 rules of simple design; these are applicable regardless of language.

The idea of day long practice sessions for programmers was formalized by Corey Haines; Read more on his blog about How does Code Retreat work?

Do read this blog post by Corey as well.

This 3:21 minute video from Code Retreat Orlando is another wicked cool introduction!

This event is part of Global Day of Coderetreat.

Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. We will spend the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format. You can find out more information about the day on the coderetreat blog. 

What do you get?

  • A great day of practice in hard-core coderetreat style facilitated by Bill Tucker and 
    Sean Reifschneider
  • Morning coffee / pastry-like stuff & afternoon coffee for the final push
  • A fantastic lunch


Due to limited event capacity, please be sure to cancel your ticket if you will be unable to make it.



Without these folks, we'd be doing this in a basement without any delicous treats:
