Wirecard Coding Dojo Session
Invitation to the Wirecard Coding Dojo Session
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
Wirecard, the leading specialist for payment processing and issuing, is happy to invite you to its first-ever coding dojo session on the 26th of September, as a side event of Bits & Pretzels.
What is a coding dojo?
A coding dojo is a meeting where a bunch of coders get together to work on a programming challenge. They are there to have fun and to engage in Deliberate Practice in order to improve their skills. The RandoriKatafocuses on coding in front of others, most often something from scratch, in a very short amount of time (1 to 1.5 hours). They use various languages, various tools, various exercise formats. They consider the outcome of an exercise successful when it is completed within the allocated time AND the audience can repeat the exercise at home by themselves.
What does the agenda look like?
If you are one of the 25 coders to register for the Wirecard coding dojo session, a shuttle bus will pick you up in front of the Bits & Pretzels building and bring you to Wirecard Headquarters in Aschheim. Once you have arrived, we ask you to please register at the front desk for the session. Don’t worry, snacks and drinks will be offered ;-)
7:15pm: Departure from Bits & Pretzels (in front of the Bits & Pretzels building) to Wirecard Headquarters
7:30pm: Welcome to Wirecard (registration)
8:00pm: Coding dojo begins (snacks & drinks)
9:30pm: Shuttle bus will bring you back to Bits & Pretzels
