Python Coding Dojo

start: Apr 30, 2016 09:00AM
End: Apr 30, 2016 12:00PM

Venue: Zilogic Systems Pvt Ltd, No.15, IV Main Road, Kamaraj Nagar, Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600041, India

Description: The event is something new, and I guess people are a bit skeptic about it. People are sending in mails, along the lines of “Can I attend this event, I am an experienced Python programmer?”, “I am a newbie, is the event for me?” First, let’s reiterate the event format.

The gathered members propose topics / programs to work on
One program is selected from the proposed topics, through voting
People are then divided into 4 groups of 5 people each (selected in random)
The group works on the code for about 1.5 hours
Each group is then given 15 min to present their code, and get review feedback

Now I will try to answer the question, “Is the event for me?”

If you are Python newbie, who has just started learning Python, the event will involve writing medium sized Python programs. You will learn by watching other experienced programmers code, contributing your bit to the coding, understanding why people use one construct over the other, etc.

If you are a seasoned Python programmer, you can learn a lot from a Coding Dojo, as well. You will learn by answering newbie questions. The questions will force you to think deeper, about why you do things in a certain way, the advantages / disadvantages of a particular approach, etc.

Both categories of people will mutually benefit from each other. It’s a win-win for everybody. So hurry up and sign-up for the event at !
