Today i attended on a Coding Dojo at Elite
Partner. It was quite interesting to see how other programers look at a problem. For me it was quite hard to realy think in baby steps like it should be in aCoding Dojo. Some of these just seemed so simple.
So what is a Coding Dojo?
On a Coding Dojo you choose a challenge. After that one person (the navigator) starts to write a simple test. This test should only test the most basic functionality and afterwards another person is making the test "green" (the pilot). So it is programming like in TDD. After a few minutes the navigator becomes the pilot and a new navigator is choosen. This goes on and on for about one to two hours. Between the implementation and new test also some refactoring can be done.
