Code Retreat Time


Hey, have you heard about the first Highgroove-hosted Code Retreat? We’re polishing our silverware and painting the walls in preparation[1] for helping developers to level-up their skills.

Read on to find out more.

Initially, I wanted to use this space to encourage you to “Act fast!” “Do it now!” and “Get On Board!” but our Code Retreat has already reached capacity.[2]

Most importantly, let me implore you to follow us on twitter and facebook to ensure you’re one of the first to hear about any Code Retreats we host in the future.

From the event details:

“Code Retreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done,’ the Code Retreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.”

  1. Not really
  2. You may still add yourself to the waitlist and we’ll notify you if any spots open up due to cancellations.
