Code dojo

I attended code dojo in Oslo today. This was my seconds dojo and a fun experience. We worked in four groups, two python, one java and one C#.

The task at hand was to create a scoring program for tennis. Simple enough to do in 2 hours, yet complex enough to spike good discussions. And it was interesting to see how some did top-down design and others bottom-up.

Coding in groups TDD style is a great experience which I recommend for anyone who haven’t tried it. The group dynamic is very different from coding by yourself and it broadens your problem solving skills.

Looking forward to the next dojo!
