  • June 25 - June 25 2016
  • 100 Shoreditch High St, London E1 6JQ, United Kingdom, London

Short version: join us and try to practice and grind as many problems as possible to become a better coder - plus a lot of extra info, hacky tips, random fun, peer programming and more for everyone attending!

A bit more in detail:

• using the CodeWars platform (register from here if you have not already: http://www.codewars.com/r/Nd_E0g - if you have any problem doing so, just contact me!), we will train together;

• you will be given a list of problems with a related scored; 

• problems will vary A LOT in difficulty, having room for both beginners at CodeCademy level and more advanced coders; 

• all katas will be available in JS, while Ruby and Python will be available for almost all of them; 

• your goal is to score as much as possible within the day;

• fair-play is important, so, if you have already done some kata, just say so to get a replacement one of about the same difficulty;

• googling, peer-programming and anything else is ok - the main goal remains to learn and hone skills, keep that in mind! 

Quite simple:

  • you get a list of katas with relevant scores and a full day to maximize your score;
  • be a fair-player: if you already solved some, just ask for a replacement kata;
  • you are allowed to google or ask peer programming for support.

Glory and self-improvement: isn't it enough ;)?
