Event Details

Rocky Mountain Ruby Conference - a single track conference devoted to the Ruby Programming Language - is happening at the Boulder Theater from Wednesday Aug 31st to Friday Sep 2nd. More info at

A mini code retreat will be held on the evening before the start of the conference. It will be a free event organized on the lines of the day long Code Retreat as designed by Corey Haines

The mini code retreat will be free for participants, and will be a practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. Over three iterations of 45 minute paired programming and 15 minute retrospection, we aim to provide the developers with an opportunity to practice the basic principles of software design, and improve their ability to write code that minimises the cost of change over time.

The event - while being organized during a conference devoted to Ruby - will be language-agnostic

Plan for the evening: 

5:30 pm - 6:00 pm : Welcome, Introductions, explanation of the problems.

6:00 pm - 6:45 pm: Session #1 of paired programming

6:45 pm - 7:00 pm: retrospective, break
