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.
About the Authors
I work as a programmer, trainer and coach.
For a while now I started creating games in order to teach others some intricate aspects of programming. I facilitated a lot of coderetreats, around 100, and around 10 legacy coderetreats. I love facilitating any other forms of deliberate practice. I also love to invent new deliberate practice sessions.
As a programmer I love to refactor legacy code. This is why I am writing a bunch of articles on the subject and I am doing code casts for that subject.
As a trainer I like teaching unit testing, TDD, refactoring, legacy code techniques, software design, but also agile, Scrum, lean, Kanban, Lean startup, etc.
As a coach I mix all of them together with a willingness to help my customers constantly improve their way of working.
