Code Dojo

  • Where: Lower Hall
  • When: Thursday 19:00 - 22:30

On Thursday evening we'll be running a Python Code Dojo in the Lower Hall, based on the long-running London Python Code Dojo series, now approaching its 10th year.

It's a very welcoming format where a coding challenge is set and everyone takes part as one of a team. It's definitely not a competition, and it definitely is a place where beginners or less experienced coders can join in.

The layout of the evening is as follows:

  • We eat, drink and socialise
  • We usually choose a challenge, but in this case we're going to write bots to play each other at this Python game:
  • We break up into teams
  • Each team decides how to approach the challenge, both from a technical and from a team perspective.
  • There's about an hour and a half of coding mayhem
  • Each team shows its code and results in front of everyone else: how far they got, what they tried, what worked, what didn't.
  • We go home happy

There will be pizza for sale and a cash bar, and of course plenty of space for you to play games.

For catering purposes, please let us know you're coming by updating your profile.

The conference wouldn't happen without the generous support of our sponsors:
