Event of the Week: Global Day of Code Retreat


This week we’re celebrating an event aiming to improve the fundamentals of software development and design through a day-long, intensive practice event. Over 100 countries were involved in the Global Day of Code Retreat, on the 8th December. Pretty impressive! They used sharypic to gather photos from participants across the world. We think this a great use of sharypic, that’s why it is the Event of the Week!
The first Global Day of Code Retreat was 3 years ago, and since then it has grown to be a well-attended and valued event. A simple task is repeatedly tackled over the course of several sessions, each session concentrating on a specific area of software development and design.  It gives developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, and experimentation, without the pressure of ‘getting things done’. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers improve their code writing skills in a supportive atmosphere. Awesome!
