This year, we are on track to hit 160 cities! With an average of 20-25 participants per city, that's over 3000 developers! You can find out more information about the day on the 2012 global day announcement.

Where will Corey be? Time-Travelling!
In order to raise awareness, Corey Haines will repeat his time-traveling feat from last year. He will facilitate one of the first coderetreats in Sydney, Australia, hop a flight across the International Date Line and land in Honolulu, Hawaii, in the morning. He'll then facilitate the last coderetreat of the day.
