Cooler weather and vibrant colors signal one thing: it's that time of the year when software developers around the world gather for Global Day of CodeRetreat.

When we're on the clock and under tight schedules, we software developers often make compromises and take shortcuts, writing code that's less than perfect. This is a necessary choice because our focus is on getting things done. We can't afford to, nor should we, spend a lot of time trying to write perfect code.

At CodeRetreat, we get a chance to forget about schedules and managers breathing down our necks to check on when we'll be done with that thing.

At CodeRetreat, we focus instead on writing perfect code. The goal of CodeRetreat is to learn to write code that is readable, testable, and maintainable. If you end up writing just one line of code, as long as it's a perfect line of code, you'll have achieved the goal of CodeRetreat.

If you're a developer looking to raise the bar and close the gap between your daily coding level and your perfect coding level, find a local or virtual CodeRetreat event this weekend where you can hang and learn with a bunch of really smart and really nice people.

Yes it is!

I've registered to the event a while ago, and so it is happening this Saturday - will be going.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
