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.

Why would you come and join us

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

How

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

There is no predefined agenda. We just meet and work on whatever we feel like.

Important

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

Also, as soon as you know you can no longer attend the meeting please change your RSVP to NO immediately. Consider this gesture a sign of respect towards other members of this group who 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.

Coding Dojo

A Coding Dojo is a team practice format that accelerates knowledge transfer and sharing skills between team members. With an experienced facilitator, it is also a way of learning by applying various techniques.

Objectives

The following skills are typical candidates for improvement during a dojo:

• Refactoring
• Simple design
• Clean code
• Improving pair programming technique
• How to safely modify code you don't understand (usually legacy code)
• Learning a new programming language
• Unit testing
• Test driven development

In addition, coding dojo can be used by a team as a collective and structured way of solving difficult or risky problems related to production, like fixing a bug or redesigning parts of the application.

How it works?

The basic format of a coding dojo:

• All developers and the facilitator gather in a room.
• The facilitator introduces the purpose and the format of the coding dojo.
• One laptop with a functional development environment is connected to a projector.
• Two developers pair program on the laptop. The others are in the room, watching the code changes.
• Every 7 minutes, one developer leaves the laptop and the next one from the room takes his place.
• After a specified period of time (usually around two hours), the dojo ends with a retrospective.

From Dogma to Light: Embracing The Agile Mindset

Are you disappointed or frustrated by the results of your Agile approach?


Have you put in place the roles, artifacts, practices and rituals and you did not realised the promised benefits? If so, you're not alone.


This is a classic problem, due to textbook Agile implementations that are rigid, mechanical, and driven by so-called "best practices" 

Join us to discuss about what it means to be agile. We will examine the most often overlooked, subjective, personal, and intangible pieces that are often missing from effective agile implementations.
