A community event: Bring your own code

Bring your own code

Last month I started a new community event idea. It is called “Bring your own code”, and I “stole” it from what Antoine Vernois is doing in the Toulouse Software Craftsmanship Community. You can find here the event page. Tomorrow we will have the second edition that you can find here. Let’s go a bit into the mechanics of this event type.

Why

  • You have a project and you want a second opinion.
  • Your code needs improvements and you do not know where to start from.
  • You just like to show some awesome code and give it as an example.

Code and beer – First experience

Code and Beer

I wanted for a long time to organize a gathering of programmers where anyone can come and go whenever they please. One year ago I read about the “Code & Coffee” and the “Code & Beer” events that happen in the world, but I was more familiar with the ones in USA and UK. Because I do not drink coffee, and because it’s reaaaally hard to meet-up with someone living in Bucharest at 7:00 AM, I decided to try the “Code and Beer” experience.

The first thing I did was to ask Sandro Mancuso, the amazing force behind the London Software Craftsmanship Community, to help me a bit to organize the first Code & Beer. He gave me some good advices: give a quick intro about the group and future events,  start with quick introductions during which people say what they want to do (pet project, kata, just have a drink and decide later), ask if any one wants to give lightning talks, encourage people to pair, enjoy the evening.
