Hosting and Facilitating
About the Book
This book was born from the need to explain others that they can facilitate a coderetreat. After many first-time facilitator training sessions during the 5 years organizing Global Day of Coderetreat, we realized that we need another medium to explain coderetreat. It is true that the depth of facilitating and hosting can be understood only after dealing with these tasks. This book will help anyone who wants to facilitate or host a coderetreat to make that transition faster and to be more productive during the learning process.
