Icosystem is teaming up with Agile New England to sponsor the Boston Coderetreat for the Global Day Of Coderetreat on December 3rd, 2011. Zach Shaw, a Senior Software Developer at Icosystem and organizer of the Boston Software Craftsmanship Group, will be facilitating the event.
Global Day of Coderetreat is a world-wide event celebrating passion and software craftsmanship. Over 2,200 passionate software developers in 90 cities around the world will spend the day practicing the craft of software development using the coderetreat format.
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done’, the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.
