Malmö is participating in the Global Day of Coderetreat 2012!
Coderetreat (http://coderetreat.org/about) 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 fun and highly effective means of skill improvement.
For 32 hours on December 8th, Coderetreats will be held all over the world as part of the Global Day of Coderetreat. The Global Day of Coderetreat helps to raise awareness of Coderetreats and brings people together from all over the world. Most importantly, The Global Day of Coderetreat helps to support global efforts to find, encourage, and educate the next generation of software developers (through the Coderetreat Community Contribution Fund).
Last year, 94 cities participated. This year, we anticipate approximately 200 cities will participate with an average of 15-20 participants per city.
To celebrate this significant event, we'll be participating in some global activities in addition to our normal Coderetreat activities. Afterwards, stick around and we'll all go out to dinner or for a few drinks. It's going to be a lot of fun!
You only need to bring a laptop with the development tools you require to write code using your chosen programming languages. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
