Code Craftsman Saturdays alternates each month between a regular Code Retreat format workshop and a deep-dive format. In March we'll be going deep on a topic of interest (TBA).

We will have breakfast together starting by 8:30 and get to know one another. Around 9 I introduce the challenge and get people started. You and your chosen pair will wrestle with the problem for 45 minutes, and then we'll put laptops down and do a brief retrospective. The retrospectives allow all to share what they learned and to maybe choose something to do differently next time. Then we do it again. 

What's going on here is learning, and practice. One of the best values is learning from one another, and 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 a deep dive in new learning, The primary focus of a code retreat is practicing our skills until they become great habits. 

FREE PARKING: On the corner of E Ann St and 4th Ave is the multi-level Washtenaw County Courthouse parking garage. Parking is always free all day on weekends.

Code Craftsman Saturdays alternates each month between some form of Code Retreat format and a deep-dive format. 
In April we will have a Mobile Agile Developer Workshop, led by the author of Agile Swift - Programming Using Agile Tools and Techniques, Bulletproof Android, and founder of RIIS

We will have breakfast together starting by 8:30 and get to know one another. Around 9 Godfrey will 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.
