Please mark your calendar and RSVP here.

Code Craftsman Saturdays alternates each month between a regular Code Retreat format workshop and a deep-dive format. In August we'll be doing a Coderetreat.

We will have breakfast together starting by 8:30 and get to know one another. Around 9 I introduce the challenge and get people started. You and your chosen pair will wrestle with the problem for 45 minutes, and then we'll put laptops down and do a brief retrospective. The retrospectives allow all to share what they learned and to maybe choose something to do differently next time. Then we do it again. 

What's going on here is learning, and practice. One of the best values is learning from one another, and pair programming with people you would otherwise never have the opportunity to work with. You get exposed to different ways of thinking, different habits, and different skills, roughly 6 times in the course of one day.  We do it every month, so we've gotten pretty good at it.

The primary focus of a deep dive in new learning, The primary focus of a code retreat is practicing our skills until they become great habits. 

As always, bring your laptop, and do not forget your charger. You will not need any software beyond a browser on your laptop.

FREE PARKING: On the <a>corner of E Ann St and 4th Ave</a> is the street-level-and-below Washtenaw County Courthouse parking garage. Parking is always free all day on weekends.
