Code & Beer Cluj

Let's get together to write good code and discuss interesting topics in IT.

Bring your laptop and your code or think about something that you would like to practice or discuss. There is NO pre-established agenda. It is up to you to come forth with ideas and make these meetings worth-while for you and the rest of the group.


Code & Beer is meant for people that want to learn and teach others.


We aim to create a "human knowledge-base" that will help each participant improve him/herself. It's important to actively contribute to these meetings with topics that you find interesting or puzzling. These could include: a technical problem that you encountered while working on your projects, an interesting article that you've read, a new technology/framework/language, TDD, coding best practices and patterns etc.

Be prepared to do some pair-programming. Don't be afraid to share your code and your opinions. It's the best way to learn and improve yourself.

The format:

(The schedule is not strict, what follows are just some guidelines to provide our meetings with some structure. You may arrive and leave at any time.)

The meetings last about 2 hours, starting from 7 p.m. Between 7.15 - 7.30 we have a very short introduction about the purpose of the meeting, the participants and what they want to practice. After that, we pair up and start coding and discussing.

If you decide to attend, please RSVP. This will help us determine the number of spots to reserve. When you know you cannot attend the meeting any more please change your RSVP to NO as soon as possible.

BYOC – Bring Your Own Code

The idea
Participants come with real code:

- Real work project
- Personal project

- Code kata
- Others

Purpose
Bring a short piece of code that has a problem which you do not know how to attack.

Codebase
It can be a piece of code which we are particularly proud of and you want to show it to the world.
OR
It can also be a piece of code that asks us because:
- It is not pretty
- You do not know the test
- It has too many dependencies across
- You do not know how to evolve it without breaking it
- The design is flawed
- Any other reason

Mechanics
All the group reviews this code, see how we can attack the problem and improve the code.
The piece of code which we will focus must have been thought about in advance by the author / owner. We do not want to review all 250,000 lines of an application. A method, a class, or interactions between different objects is often sufficient to allow enough material for such a session.

Thank you Antoine Vernois and Tolouse Software Craftsmanship Group for this original idea: http://www.meetup.com/Software-Craftsmanship-Toulouse/events/128862682

Code and beer

What

The code and beer idea is simple enough: we gather in the evening after work, in a pub, have a beer and write some code. It is a social coding event where you can share ideas with other developers. You can come and leave whenever you want.

The duration of the meeting is two hours, but that does not mean that you cannot stay as much as you want.

 

Why would you come and join us

Meet-up with other programers
Work on your own project
Help others on their projects
Find someone that might help you on a specific topic
Pair with someone and learn new things
Just hang around to talk with people

 

How

Bring your laptop and some code that you can work on. If you don't have code that think about what you would like to practice during the evening.

There is no predefined agenda. We just meet-up and work on whatever we feel like it. It will be over... when it will be over.

 

Important

Please specify what you would like to do during the evening by answering the question "what would you like to practice" when registering.

When you know you cannot attend the meeting any more please change your RSVP to NO as soon as possible. Consider this gesture as a sign of respect to other members of this group that might want to attend in your place.

The number of attendees is limited because of the difficulties of finding a big pub and making reservations for a big group.

Pair program in a functional programming language

The original name for this event was "Functional Programming Coderetreat", inspired by the event format used in the Cluj FP community.

After some thought, it makes no sense to impose on this particular activity an event format driven by interruptions, since functional programming is challenging enough as it is. So I renamed the event to "Pair program in a functional programming language".

The event will coincide with one of the 12 hands-on workshops that Lucian Mogosanu and myself organize as part of a wider educational project called "Tweλve days of functional programming", the details of which you can find here:

http://workshop.rosedu.org/2015/sesiuni/haskell

Therefore, the event will take place at the Politehnica University of Bucharest, in the Computer Science building, in room EG306/Intel. A visual guide for how to get to the venue is here:


http://webdevupb.github.io/#cumseajunge

Some of the workshop participants have already gained a beginner-level understanding of Haskell and are eager to find out what it takes to build a small application in another functional programming language. Therefore I will strongly encourage them to pair with one of you.


The idea is that you sign up for this event as either a "host" or a "guest".
Each host will bring a laptop with a fully configured development environment for the functional programming language of their choice.
Guests may choose to pair-program with one of the hosts, if they want hands-on experience, or just learn-by-watching.

Once the teams are established, each team decides on a game they want to build. A few examples of games to choose from would be TicTacToe, Pacman, Snake, Conway's Game of Life, or any other (preferably simple) game.

Those of you who want to be hosts, please mention it in a comment below, along with your favorite functional programming language.

Open Space around productivity

Open Space (Technology) este un format de evenimente la care participantii creeaza continutul. Ideea principala e ca discutiile sa fie relevante pentru toti cei prezenti si ca fiecare sa aiba ocazia sa contribuie la ele. Astfel ca discutiile sunt propuse si conduse de participanti, in jurul temei principale. 

Hai sa ne intalnim si sa vorbim despre productivitate: ce facem ca sa fim eficienti in munca noastra si ce putem imbunatati. Discutiile pot varia de la cum sa ne organizam sau sa comunicam mai bine, cum sa folosim uneltele mai bine sau orice alta idee care crezi ca poate sa aduca valoare.

Nu e nevoie sa pregatesti nimic, toate subiectele le vom propune la inceputul evenimentului, e nevoie doar sa vrei sa impartasesti experienta ta.

Inregistrarea la eveniment e necesara pentru ca locatia noastra poate primi un numar limitat de participanti. In eventualitatea in care nu mai poti participa, te rugam sa iti schimbi RSVP-ul cat mai repede. Considera acest gest un semn de respect pentru alti membrii ai grupului care ar dori sa participe in locul tau.

Program:
11:30 - 11:45 Primirea participantilor
11:45 - 11:50 Introducere
11:50 - 12:00 Formarea marketplace-ului
12:00 - 12:45 Prima sesiune
12:45 - 13:30 A doua sesiune
13:30 - 13:45 Retrospectiva
13:45 - 13:50 Incheiere
