Imagine a day writing code just for the love of writing it beautifully! A day without the office pressures of "getting things done" … a day just focused on practicing the art of writing clean, lean, modular, and test-driven code… Welcome to the Global Day of Coderetreat, an annual global event where passionate programmers come together to hone their skills.

GDCR 2020 will be held on the 6th and 7th of November 2020 across many cities around the world… and will involve many many programmers world wide.

This link gives an idea of what a typical Coderetreat Day looks like… and we will be following a similar structure on the day.
