Register for Umejugs coderetreat here!
A coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event focused on TDD, 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.
Umeå is participating in the Global Day of Coderetreat 2011! On December 3rd, Coderetreats will be held at 60+ cities all over the world. To celebrate this significant event, we'll be participating in some global activities in addition to our normal Coderetreat activities. At the end of the day various items from the global sponsors will be handed out through a random draw.
You only need to bring a laptop with the development tools you require to write code using your chosen programming languages - all languages are welcome! A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Check out to Corey Haines's coderetreat site if you want further details on what to expect.
