A day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on software development fundamentals and design.

About this Event

Stride Consulting will be hosting Coderetreat at the App Academy campus in New York City on Saturday, November 16 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, co-facilitated by Amitai Schleier and Emmanuel Genard.

Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on 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 principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.

  • Start with a simple programming problem: Conway's Game of Life.
  • Work with different partners to discuss and solve the problem.
  • We'll add restrictions to force you to consider different approaches.
  • After each round, throw out your code and repeat!

Some things to note:

You should have a good handle on at least one language. Preferably you know a unit testing framework/runner for that language. This is a peer learning activity so languages used depend on the attendees and who you choose to pair with throughout the day. We will share what languages people are ready for at the beginning of the day so you may want to plan who and what languages you want to work with throughout the day.

Do I need a laptop?

While not absolutely necessary, it is recommended that you bring a laptop with a dev environment setup including a unit test runner for your language. If not, we will be pairing. As long as half the attendees have configured laptops, it will work.
