Leeds Code Dojo is a group dedicated to programming. We focus on practical coding sessions, where you can learn by doing.

Christmas Lights Challenge - Wednesday 7th November

Here at Leeds Code Dojo we believe it's never to early to start preparing for Christmas!

So this month, we're going to be writing controllers for (fictional) programmable Xmas lights, which we will try out using an advanced emulator (AKA the Console).

ASCII Xmas Tree

As usual we'll work mainly in pairs - your development approach is up to you, but we will of course encourage good practices including automated unit and/or acceptance tests.

At the end of the night you'll have the option of showing your solutions, and in addition we'll see who has managed to create the best Christmas display with their program!

Doors are open from 18:00 with pizza arriving shortly after, and we'll get started on the coding at 18:30. This night is suitable for any level of experience, but you do need to have some knowledge of programming. We'll finish up around 21:00, and anyone that's interested can head to Mr Foleys for a refreshing ale or two.

Please register on meetup if you'd like to attend.

Hope to see you there!
