Global Day Of Coderetreat is a community event happening on November 6 - November 7 2020. Join this year and practice your skills, embrace new paradigms and get to meet new people from all over the world!

With COVID-19 having a severe impact on the availability of on-site events, we're embracing the virtual events we had in the past more than ever. Local on-site events are marked with a 🔴, while virtual events are marked with 🔵. We encourage you to stay safe, the map is here to help you find either a local event or an event that matches your timezone.

What's there to learn?

A coderetreat is an excellent occasion to practice Test-Driven-Development and Pair Programming, but it's also a great chance to see a new programming language for the first time or to practice mentoring.

During the day, you get to work on the same problem with different people for 45 minutes each. It's a great way to explore different angles and perspectives, and once you're past the desire to "get it done", it becomes a unique learning experience.

Where it's happening

For this year, we will provide you with guidance to find an event that works for you, both time and safety-wise. We advise everyone to take all precautions they deem necessary, so if an on-site event isn't for you, we hope you'll find a remote event that matches your timezone.

Stay tuned for the first events to be listed on our page!
