Global Day of Coderetreat 2012 - Pittsburgh
Saturday, December 8, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM (EST)
This is our biggest Coderetreat of the year!
We have great things planned for this year's Global Day. We have a lot of space and available tickets. If you were unable to register for a coderetreat in the past, this is your chance. You don't want to miss it!
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event focused on the fundamentals of software development and design.The unique coderetreat format (which eliminates the pressure of 'getting things done' and focuses on practicing basic principles of good design) has proven to be a highly effective (and fun) means of skill improvement.
About the Global Day of Coderetreat
For 32 hours on December 8th, Coderetreats will be held all over the world as part of the Global Day of Coderetreat. The Global Day of Coderetreat helps to raise awareness of Coderetreat and brings people together from all over the world. Most importantly, the Global Day of Coderetreat helps to support global efforts to find, encourage, and educate the next generation of software developers (through the Coderetreat Community Contribution Fund).
Last year, 94 cities participated. This year, we anticipate approximately 200 cities will participate with about 3,000 developers worldwide!
To celebrate this significant event, we will participate in some global activities in addition to our normal coderetreat activities. Afterwards, stick around and we'll all go out to dinner or for a few drinks. It is going to be a lot of fun!
Registration ends on Sunday, December 2nd
What you need to bring
You need to bring a laptop with the development tools you require to write code using your chosen programming languages. You may also bring an extra keyboard and mouse (to make it easier to pair program). Coffee and lunch will be provided. Check out coderetreat.org for further details on what to expect.
We have a super-cool flyer for the event which you can download here. Feel free to print it out, post it in approved locations at work, share it via email, etc.
The $15.00 registration deposit will be refunded in full when:
- you attend the event
- you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, December 2nd that you are unable to attend
Any funds not refunded will be used to help fund future local Pittsburgh Coderetreats.
