Oslo Coding Dojo has jumped at the chance to connect with the Oslo Perl community. They will be present at the hackathon this coming weekend to arrange dojos and spread the word of kata and dojo goodness. Joy and happiness!
What can participants expect?
- Learn about what coding dojos and katas are all about
- Practice TDD and pair programming in a Perl 6 context
- Experience true collaborative programming
- Have fun!
Good programming requires good practice, and at a dojo we get to learn together and practice the good stuff while having fun. We learn by doing (actual practice), from repetition (what can we do better?) and from the conversations (from one another and looking back after we’re done).
Learn a new way to teach Perl 6 and good programming practices!
What are coding dojos?
Dojos are a place to practice. Coding dojos are groups of programmers getting together to practice their craft. The concept of a dojo stems from Andy Hunt’s coding kata article, which reminds us to take time off to get at what we do. For more information about dojos, see
The first session will last for about an hour, including a short introduction to get us started. Further sessions will last an hour or as long as the participants want to. We’ll aim to spend the first session on getting to know the tools and the format, and then use the subsequent ones to improve on this.
Hope to see you there!
