I've been having a lot of fun getting reacquainted with Kotlin
for the Advent of Code
. I've learned a lot from all the problem solving and refactoring I've done and I want to share what I have learned so far.
The way I want to share my lessons learned is slightly unorthodox though.
So far, I have written a few articles and posted them up to my GitHub pages blog
. I could carry on doing that and be done with it. But if you've known me long enough in these forums, you probably know that when it comes to refactoring and problem solving, I'm hardly ever done with it. There's just so much to learn!
Outside of the Ranch, in my regular day job, I've been facilitating agile software development dojos
for almost a year now and I've learned to love the interactive learning environment that a dojo provides. I've had many opportunities to do collaborative development (pairing/mobbing/ensemble) with people and it has been an absolute blast. I feel that people I coach learn a lot more from me in that kind of setting versus just reading articles off the internet.
So, here's my crazy idea:
Would you like to learn more about Kotlin?
Would you like to learn about code smells and refactoring in Kotlin?
Would you like to learn more about Test-Driven Development?
Would you like to learn more about collaborative development?
Then join me in a virtual dojo where we'll tackle one of the Advent of Code problems and learn more about all of the above.

Important Things to Note:
* The session(s) will be recorded and eventually posted to YouTube or some other video streaming service. If you don't want your likeness and/or voice recorded and published on the internet, you may still join and just observe quietly and off-video.
* This is a strictly voluntary event. It is free to join, but as the organizer of the event, I can't, at this time, promise to compensate you for your time or effort. (But time will tell, depending on how this goes).
