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 together and learning from each other. Welcome to the Coderetreat, an event where passionate programmers come together to hone their skills.

What is Coderetreat?

This event gives you an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, by perhaps trying to do something a way you've not tried before. For example, trying a new language or a new Programming paradigm. If you write only one line of code, but it's the best code you have ever written to date, then that is a win!


Are there any prerequisites for joining this coderetreat?
Yes: You should want to join the coderetreat, and you should love programming. That's it. No matter whether you're a greenhorn or an old stager, everyone is welcome.
What programming language will be used?
You can use any programming language you like. Typical choices include C, C#, C++, Clojure, Groovy, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, Scala. If you like, you can also use more exotic languages, like Prolog. Christian Hujer, the facilitator, is a big fan of Prolog.
Do I have to bring my own laptop?
You can bring your laptop, if you like. But you don't have to.
Do I have to pay for breakfast / lunch / tea break?
No, this is a coderetreat. Amdocs will take care of the food.
Do I have to pay for participation?
Of course not! It's a coderetreat!
I have already attended a previous coderetreat. Can I attend again?
Oh yes, you can! And you should! Coderetreats are like katas, they are to be repeated.
I have not attended the previous coderetreat. Can I still attend this one?
Yes, you can! Coderetreats are isolated events. You do not need the previous coderetreat or any knowledge from that to attend this one
I have registered for coderetreat but will not be able to attend it. Do I need to cancel my registration?
Just inform as soon as possible via email so that other participants could get a chance.
I'm just a student, can I still join?
Of course, you can! Whether you're an experienced engineer or a student doesn't matter, as long as you know the fundamentals of programming and love programming.
