Code Retreat coming in January

What is a Code Retreat? Here’s a short blurb from the Code Retreat organization’s website.

“Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. By providing developers the opportunity to take part in focused practice, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done’, the coderetreat format has proven itself to be a highly effective means of skill improvement. Practicing the basic principles of modular and object-oriented design, developers can improve their ability to write code that minimizes the cost of change over time.”

We’re wanting to have one in Albuquerque in January at Ideas & Coffee.

Today’s iOS dev workshop

Today’s iOS developers workshop was great fun! We had a presentation on jailbreaking your iPhone, and a quick look at the new Watch Kit for Apple Watches. Cliff came by to ask about Test Driven Development in the iOS world, and to mention an up and coming event, a Code Retreat that’ll be happening Jan 10th at Ideas and Coffee. This inspired a talk by Jeff Hellman on TDD using XCode that’ll happen in two weeks. We heard several great broken code stories, and Michael Deitchur dropped in to show us a video of his latest work, Tile – Gila Monster. Also we all got to say hi to Steven Cussan who was back from California for a few days.

Some pointers from the Jailbreaking talk.
