Java Coding Dojo in Sydney and Wellington in October

At the end of the ssession the code is discarded (often it is archived for future reference and study). The amount of time spent on the problem is fixed. Regardless of the state of the solution, when the time expires, the session is done. The rules and sample session agenda, which are largely inspired/copied from other better established coding dojos ;-), are presented here: There is a coding challenge that is announced beforehand. There is a room with one computer attached to video screen. The presenter explains the coding challenge and starts the coding. The presenter may or may not choose to have a co...
