tretton37 office in Lund, Lilla Fiskaregatan 8A, 222 22
Developers honing their craft together.
rsvp@tretton37.com before May 22nd

How often do we as developers get a chance to practice and really hone our craft without focusing mainly on the end-result? Wouldn’t it be great to try? We thought so! That’s why, in the spirit of Corey Haines, we’d like to invite you to a Code Retreat for a full day at our office in Lund.

The purpose is for us to get a chance to practice, develop and ponder on our skills as developers, rather than learning new languages and frameworks. We aim to focus on the most basic and fundamental aspects of programming and it’s up to you to choose which language and IDE you want to use.

Attendance is completely free of charge and breakfast, lunch and snacks are included. The numbers of seats are limited though, so if you’re interested, please rsvp rather sooner than later.

Please bring your own computer, with IDE and unit testing framework ready to go, in order for us to get started as soon as possible.

We’re looking forward to a great day together. Some of us are planning to head out and grab some drinks afterwards and everyone is invited.

If you have any questions feel free to contact Oskar Hülphers, +46(0)706-735898.

Greetings fellow craftsmen,

Do you have a preliminary agenda for the day or is it ad-hoc fun to be expected?
