Tonight Alt.Net-Sundsvall had it's first meeting. We held a coding dojo where we practiced the famous Bowling Game kata. It was a really good time and a perfect way to share and learn knowledge about, TDD, OO-design, Resharper etc.

Lessons learned

  • Make sure everyone knows the problem domain (in our case the rules of bowling)
  • Only code enough to satisfy the unit tests. We ended up with far to complex implementation in the beginning and had to refactor allot
  • Order food as soon as possible. "A hungry developer is a crappy developer" :)

Images from the epic event can be found here.

And finally a big thanks to Steria for letting us use their office.
