?We will be confirming the exact venue soon, every retreat has to have a little mystery! We will also be organising a social activity closer to the time with delegates, dinner in Charlestown or a trip to Eden perhaps!

Join Kevlin Henney and Jon Jagger for 2 days of Deliberate Practice.

Knowledge. Skill. Expertise, the skill in applying knowledge

These form the backbone of effective software development
Oh, and fun — with that you get really effective software development
And that’s what we aim to do at Code Retreat! At the Agile on the Beach Code Retreat you will receive expert guidance from our experts and work with and learn from other teams at the retreat. During the retreat we will discuss and practice software craftsmanship, communication and creativity, focusing on TDD, pair programming, trying out new things and revisiting old ones. Deliberate practice involves careful repetition and reflection to master, explore and understand a technique, to know its boundaries, to make it second nature.

If you code every day, keep in mind that a change is as good as a rest — yes, there will be coding, but it’s not your workaday coding. We will be using cyber-dojo, an innovative, collaborative, open source environment. We are going to have fun — join us!

With time to look at different code, and code differently, this retreat will open your mind to different ways of doing things and new ways of approaching old problems with great rewards. Using Jon Jagger’s innovative cyber-dojo environment, you will get to re-examine coding habits and debate modern practices with experts and peers.

This retreat is open to individuals and teams of all abilities:

Junior programmers who are looking to master their craft
Experienced developers who want to reflect on their own practices and hone their skills
All programmers who want to step back and examine how they can be better

Early Bird and Group Booking discounts available
