Code Retreat UK @ Scottish Ruby Conference

This just in:

Following the success of the UK’s first Code Retreat last November, we are inviting developers of all skill levels to join us in Edinburgh on the day after the Scottish Ruby Conference (

We will follow the basic code retreat format (see below) and sprinkle in a bit of conference magic. 


A Code Retreat is a day long programming session based around a simple coding challenge.  Developers of different skill levels are invited to engage in deliberate practice as equals. The goal is to learn, teach and improve with fellow software developers in a non-competitive setting.

If you are looking to improve your software development skills and network with people in your industry then please come along and embrace the challenge.


Pairs will attempt to solve the problem in 40 minute iterations.  At the end of each iteration one person swaps with another pair and all code is deleted.  The new pair then try to make a better solution based off their experiences.

We will be providing breakfast and lunch.  After the event finishes we will be heading to a nearby pub.
