Participants of Global Day of Coderetreat 2019 Toronto

As Software Engineers, we are hired to ship working software. Growing and honing our craft often takes a back seat to delivering features, patching bugs, and hitting release dates.

In contrast, a coderetreat is dedicated to learning how to create well-designed software. It’s a day when we can apply and strengthen skills, techniques, and strategies that continually improve not just the code, but also the coder.

A coderetreat is an opportunity:

to push beyond boundaries we define as “good enough”, and explore what is possible

for us to solidify our understanding of software development fundamentals through the practices of Pair Programming and Test-Driven Design (TDD)

to connect with like-minded Software Engineers who share a passion for professional excellence and deliberate practice in software development

On this Global Day of Coderetreat, multiple coderetreats happen simultaneously across the world. Everyone works on the same problem: Conway’s Game of Life.
