Global Day of Coderetreat in Calgary, Nov. 14th
Hi CAMUG Members,
We're once again sponsoring the Global Day of Coderetreat, Calgary Edition. Please join our facilitator, Tony Vo, for 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 pressure of "getting things done", the code retreat 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. Furthermore, it's a good way to share experience with different developers by pair programming on the problem.
Structure of a code retreat:
• The code retreat days consists 4-5 sessions. Each sessions' learnings built upon previous sessions.
• Here's the rough outline for the day : http://coderetreat.org/facilitating/structure-of-a-coderetreat
Tony Vo graduated from University of Calgary and has been a software developer for the last 10 years in the online education and online games industry. Some of his recent projects include tools/utilities to automatic analyze and assess student's homework in math, economic and financial accounting. More recently, he's been working on building systems for Calgary Scientific. Tony is passionate about developing systems effectively within a team environment and in developing complex algorithms, such as high computing graphics algorithms.
Sponsor for this specific event is Innovate Calgary for providing the venue.
