A Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design.
Developers can disconnect from constraints like time and feature pressure - just focus on the craft, programming. And train
to become better. You don't have to ship anything. Just practice.
You will be guided through the day by a moderator/facilitator. At the beginning of the day all details will be explained.
If you have never done it before? Just come and have fun doing your craft. Read more ...
Pair programming is at it's core. Sitting in a room with many people so you can switch pairs makes it even more fun. 5 x 45 minutes and one quick retrospective after each allows everyone to share and learn from each other. Yes, one full day of programming just for fun, and throw away the code. But keeping the learnings!

Worldwide, in the best case :).
