IMPORTANT - As places are limited, please register specifically for this session. Also, please register for day 2 of LAST Conf, if you wish to attend the 2nd day.
If you are a developer with more experience, you might like to consider Agile Dev Immersion - Refactoring.
Get ready to Level Up your agile developer skills. Inspired by Code Retreat, we have run a similar session at LAST Conference for the past few years. We have felt that it's Important to support learning in technical disciplines that are extremely important in agile software development.
This is an intensive practice event for developers, inspired by the Code retreat movement. It focuses on the fundamentals of software development and design, including pair programming, test-driven development, OO and functional programming techniques, and new languages. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of 'getting things done', the 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.
This event is beginner friendly. However it is also suitable for those who have already attended similar sessions as we will be creating a tenpin bowling scorer rather than solving Game Of Life again. There is also a concurrent workshop for Refactoring legacy code that is aimed at more experienced devs.
Following the opening session, The Agile Developer Immersion workshop will take the remainder of the day, with breaks synchronised with the main conference. You will also be welcome to attend the end of day drinks!
Special registration for Coderetreat here
If you are at Coderetreat, you don't need a regular LAST Conference Day 2 registration. However, if you wish to come to LAST on Thursday 29, please register for Day 1.
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.
For an in-depth understanding of the philosophy behind a day of coderetreat, please watch this introduction video.
Also every year global day of codretreat is organised towards the end of the year. Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Last year, over 2000 passionate software developers in 150 cities around the world spent the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format.
Arrive at 8.30 for registration and briefing for a 9am start.
