On Saturday, November 14th, Coderetreats will be held all around the world as part of the Global Day of Coderetreat, bringing people together from all over the globe.   Portland continues its strong record of building better developers and growing the Portland software community with its 4th GDCR offering.


Come join your fellow programmers to practice the art of software development together.  Write code, learn from others, teach someone else, and expand your network of friends who are passionate about their craft. Show up with your laptop and favorite development tools to participate, everything else is provided.  Continental breakfast and lunch will be served.  The event is free, thanks to generous sponsors covering food costs.

Coderetreat hones software craftsmanship skills and development practices. Over the course of a day, developers use pair programming and discussion to exchange knowledge during repeated implementation of a well-known code problem (Conway's Game of Life). Additional constraints are added throughout the day to emphasize good design concepts and behaviors. More details about the Code Retreat format can be found athttp://www.coderetreat.org.
