It's Really Quite Simple...

Start with a simple programming problem: Conway's Game of Life.
Work with different partners to discuss and solve the problem.
We'll add restrictions to force you to consider different approaches.
After each round, throw out your code and repeat!

Host your own Coderetreat

Missed the Global Day of Coderetreat because there wasn't an event near you? Host your own!

Coderetreats are run by volunteers who want to help out their local developer community. Hosts handle all of the logistics, and facilitators guide participants through the exercises.

Coderetreats are easy to organize and facilitate. Most of all, they are a lot of fun and a great way to meet other developers in your area!

What are you waiting for? Grab a buddy and organize a coderetreat today!

Join hundreds of hosts who want to help developers in their community improve their craft.
