North West Ruby User Group

Code Kwoon

Thursday 19th November 6:30pm at The BBC

This month Ashley Moran will leading a Coding Kwoon!

The Coding Kwoon is a place to practice software design. The training tool will be RSpec and the output of the exercise will be Ruby code. No experience of either is required to take part.

A problem will be announced on the day that will be solved using Ruby.

Two coders will sit at the front. They will pair program a behaviour-driven solution to the problem, explaining what they are thinking, what they are doing, and why they are doing it. Every five minutes, one of the pair will be swapped out with a volunteer from the audience. At all times, one of the pair will be a coder experienced in RSpec.

The structure will be:

  • 6:30pm :: Welcome & Pre-session bar visit.
  • 7:00pm :: Introduction & 1st Coding session
  • 7:45pm :: Break
  • 7:55pm :: 2nd Coding session
  • 8:35pm :: Retrospective
  • 8:45pm :: Off to Odder across the road for a beer and a chat

The location

The BBC New Broadcasting House, Oxford Rd, Manchester, M1 5QA.
