Facilitating a Coderetreat

Help improve developers in your community by facilitating a coderetreat in your city.

The facilitator is an essential part of coderetreat. Responsibilities include:

  • introducing the day
  • guiding participants through each session
  • leading inter-session retrospectives
  • leading the closing circle

It is the job of the facilitator to help people learn as much as possible during the coderetreat.

If possible, attend at least one coderetreat before attempting to facilitate a coderetreat yourself.

There are many resources on this site to help you prepare for facilitating a coderetreat.

When you feel ready, volunteer to facilitate a coderetreat!
