July Meeting - Coding Dojo

For this month at Melbourne Alt.NET we'll be doing a Coding Dojo evening. This is an opportunity to have a bit of fun and try out something a bit different.

For anyone not familiar with what a coding dojo is take a quick look at the Coding Dojo Wiki. But put simply and as defined on the Coding Dojo Wiki:

A Coding Dojo is a meeting where a bunch of coders get together to work on a programming challenge. They are there have fun and to engage in DeliberatePractice in order to improve their skills.

There will be 2 or 3 challenges to choose from on the evening and we'll keep them fairly simple. If you look at the Coding Dojo Wiki site you might notice that there are only two types of meetings, the prepared kata and the randori kata. We will do an individual/paired version so that everyone is participating at the same time. Check out the Sydney Alt.NET group who did this back in March, and also the summary post from the March meeting for an idea of how things will run. Oh and no we WON'T be doing the same kata's. :-)

The only real requirements are to bring a laptop with your development weapon(s) of choice (anything you like) and an enthusiastic mind set. If you don't have a laptop, fear not, we'll get some paired teams happening as well.

Keep in mind that a coding dojo is not a competition and the only thing that matters is to give it a go.

Please use the RSVP voting panel to indicate if you're coming along so that we can get the pizza and drinks orders sorted. Look forward to seeing you there.
