On Saturday, November 14th, Coderetreats will be held all around the world as part of the Global Day of Coderetreat, bringing people together from all over the globe. Every year, thousands of coders all over the globe join together, and Portland will have its fourth annual event!

Come join your fellow Portland programmers to practice the art of software development together. Write code, learn from others, teach someone else, and expand your network of friends who are passionate about their craft. Show up with your laptop and favorite development tools to participate, everything else is provided. Continental breakfast and lunch will be served. The event is free, thanks to our generous sponsors covering food costs.

Coderetreat is designed to hone software craftsmanship skills and software design through repeated attempts to build an implementation of a well-known software problem (Conway's Game of Life). Developers use pair programming and discussion to exchange knowledge, and additional constraints are given throughout the day to emphasize good design concepts and practices.
