Global Day of Code Retreat - 10th anniversary

This year I and Steven Baker will be hosting Global Day of Code Retreat in Malmö.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the code retreat format and to commemorate this the global day is now two days! Both Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of November. You are welcome to one or both days.


The dates are the 15th (Friday) and 16th (Saturday) of November. So two days this year. One for the people who don't want to do weekends and one for those that rather do the weekend. Or two days for the people who can't get enough!

We'll start each day at 10am and finnish at 6pm. Breakfast is served at 9:30. If you fancy you can stay for a couple of drinks afterwards.


It will take place at Buenos Aires 72 on Kristianstadsgatan 10A close to Möllan. If you need to travel there you can find transport information at Skånetrafiken.


a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design, away from the pressures of ‘getting things done’

The event is free for all participants but you need to register so we can plan. There will be breakfast and lunch and we need some heads up to prep it. The freenes is made possible by my employer Tedsys (in Swedish).

And bring your laptop...

You will need to bring a laptop with a working development environment for your language(s). Here are a couple of bootstraps for various languages, giving you a ready to use tooling setup:


As mentioned this event is proudly sponsored by my employer Tedsys and and we will be there (obviously).
