Global Day of Coderetreat 2012

We invite you to the Global Day of Coderetreat in Cluj-Napoca!

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

Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Last year, over 1800 passionate software developers in 94 cities around the world spent the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format. This year, we are proud to put Cluj-Napoca on the map. We invite all the passionate  developers, who want to spend a day of coding for themselves, together with the most passionate developers around the globe, to join us! We'll be practicing unit testing, TDD, pair programming and other XP techniques. Join us regardless of how much you've experienced these, as long as you are willing to try them out!

The event in co-organized by RABSCode CampCluj.rbJUG and RONUA . We expect to have developers who write code in different languages, but are bound by passion for good code. By this we want to give you the opportunity to experience coding in other languages then the one you are frequently using and to see other approaches to solve the same problem.

Our facilitator will be  Andrei Olar, 15 years in software development,  Senior Software Engineer at  iQuest (or " whoever will have me :-) "). Andrei will explain us the rules of the game.

Please register below. Don't forget to bring a laptop with at least one working development environment. We are taking care of the rest.

This is a free event made possible thanks to our sponsors:
