Please mind: This is the registration for the second location at idealo, Ritterstraße 11. We're hosting another global day of coderetreat event at ePOST, for which you can register here.
This is a 1-day event being held simultaneously in over 200 cities around the world. A Coderetreat is a full day hands-on coding workshop focused on the fundamentals of software development, design and communication. During the day you get multiple chances to try something completely different. You have the opportunity to learn new ways of testing, paradigms, architecture styles, libraries, approaches, languages or IDEs.
We welcome contributors of all possible backgrounds. We believe that more perspectives mean more insights and can teach us different approaches. This event will be held in an inclusive and safe environment and we welcome people of all experience levels from all disciplines related to software development - testers, Scrum Masters and also Product Owners usually learn a lot.
The unique coderetreat format eliminates the pressure of 'getting things done' and focuses on practicing fundamental principles of good design. The workshop is split into sessions à 45 minutes - TDD, pair programming and clean code will be practiced throughout the day. Most sessions will have additional constraints to present new challenges and make you leave your comfort zone.
The Coderetreat is free, we only charge a deposit (ticket price) which will be fully refunded when you show up. Coffee, lunch and soft drinks are provided by our sponsors.
It’s best to bring your laptop. Don’t worry if you can’t: two people will be sharing a machine anyway. It should be ready for development, with everything you need installed i.e. IDE and unit testing framework. Make sure it is set up properly by having a new project with an empty class and a failing test.
The event will be facilitated by Martin Klose, Holger Schmeisky and Markus Decke.
Holger Schmeisky is an agile Coach at Zalando focusing on the technical aspects of working in an agile company. He loves testing, writing Clean Code and enabling others go improve their practice.
Markus Decke is a Sofware Developer at idealo and is passionate about learning and sharing software development practices.
