Coding Dojo – Joseph Perline
4 September, 2006
After a brief introduction to the conference by Stephane Ducasse and a coffee, we start with a presentation by Joseph Perline about Coding Dojos. A coding dojo is a place where, with the help of other practioners and experts, you may hone your programming skills by doing Code Katas, small and simple exercizes which may be solved in a short time.
After having explained what a code kata is, Joseph proceeded with an example, taken from the list of code katas on “Pragmatic” Dave Thomas’ site. Some of the attendants joined in and tried to solve the problem while pair-programming in a test-first way.
