A monthly coding meetup in Manchester, where developers meet to hone their skills by performing Katas and Randori
Katas are taken from the Japanese martial art practice of detailed choreographed patterns of movements practised either solo or in pairs. These katas are exercised at Dojos (training places) with the idea that the skills learned in the katas become second nature during a fight situation.
In a similar way we plan to use these katas to enhance our programming skills in the real world.
For the fourth Codejo, we'll be looking again at the Minesweeper Kata in Ruby.
Again we'll focus on Test Driven Development, following the stages:
Red - failing test
Green - make test pass as simply as possible
Refactor - improve and clarify the code
But this time we'll start off pairing, as we got too carried away last time with the Randori.
Ruby download instructions can be found here.
Don't forget your laptop!
