a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design, away from the pressures of 'getting things done'
November 16th (or 15th), 2019
For the 10th anniversary, we will promote events that happen either on Friday, Nov 15th or Saturday, Nov 16th. Traditionally, the Global Day of Coderetreat takes place on Saturdays, but we also want to invite companies to promote educational opportunities for their employees by hosting a public coderetreat on Friday. We further want to open the event to people who can not participate in events over the weekend.
As a local event organizer, it is up to you to decide wether to host an event on Friday or Saturday, or even both 🎉.
Last year, there have been 133 GDCR 2018 events around the world!
🌐 Mark your calendars and spread the word: Global Day Of Coderetreat 2019 is happening on Nov 16th 2019 🎉— Coderetreat (@coderetreat) March 24, 2019
We also updated coderetreat.org with a collection of articles about coderetreats and a shout-out to our past contributors. Check it out! #10YearsOfCoderetreat
But wait, there's more: We will also promote Friday, Nov 15th for communities that want to start early or those who want to cater to people who are busy on the weekends. 🎉 #10YearsOfCoderetreat— Coderetreat (@coderetreat) March 24, 2019

Coderetreats are run by volunteers who want to help out their local developer community. Hosts handle all of the logistics, and facilitators guide participants through the exercises.
Coderetreats are easy to organize and facilitate. Most of all, they are a lot of fun and a great way to meet other developers in your area!
What are you waiting for? Grab a buddy and organize a coderetreat today!
Join hundreds of hosts who want to help developers in their community improve their craft.
For this year, we invite companies to sponsor local communities. If your company is interested in sponsoring a local coderetreat, please get in contact with us and we will connect you with the communities near you!
