Code Craftsman Saturdays alternates each month between a regular Code Retreat format workshop and a deep-dive format. In July we'll be trying out at least one new pair programming style, and maybe get a bit radical with some mob programming. There will be coding, there will be teams, and there will be new learning, guaranteed.
We will have breakfast together starting by 8:30 and get to know one another. Around 9 I'll introduce the challenge and get people started. We will be working in different sized groups throughout the day; from pairs to mob programming, and pretty much everything in-between. We will do fixed length exercises and there will be an "ask" at the conclusion of each one to expose the value.
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 this deep dive is exploring what works well in building teams.

On August 13th we'll have a Deep Dive into <somethingTBA>, courtesy of one of our sponsors.

Code Craftsman Saturdays alternates each month between a regular Code Retreat format workshop and a deep-dive format. In August we will dive into (focus on) just one practice or skill or high interest and value. Deep dives are unpredictable and always fun. There will be coding, there will be teams, and there will be new learning, guaranteed.
