Valladolid Code Retreat, May 2011

I have just attended a Code Retreat event in Valladolid, facilitated by Enrique Comba Riepenhausen. This was an excellent opportunity to meet fellow geeks interested in continuous learning, that were willing to spend a whole Saturday doing pair programming, exchanging ideas about processes and agile practices, and above all, having fun!

Learning is about getting out of your comfort zone, which was definitely my case, as I had to follow practices like TDD or pair programming, and I even paired with guys writing groovy, although the most popular languages were java and python.

Thanks a lot to Enrique, the sponsors and the organizers!

I can only encourage you to look for Code Retreats in your area, or why not organize one yourself? Really worth it!
