Probably the most commonly known kata in the coding dojo and retreat 'scene'. We choose this one to start running on as big as possible known ground.
The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. The "game" is a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves.— Wikipedia
The global day of code retreat was nearing and
since we really liked the idea and wanted to join we started discussing
if we shouldn't do something like that just for us web developers. So we can learn
Out of a simple local event this evolved, let's see what it becomes.
Martin and me we sat together and discussed what we think could be a cool format for this code retreat and what we think could and should be done to enhance the experience and get even more out of it for us web developer.
After some forth and back we thought of the following:
