Ruby Kata and Sparring
All respectable software craftsmen make efforts to keep their coding claws sharp. And solely working 9-5 on business applications will dull one's whit. In this session we will broaden your coding horizons with some Ruby Kata and test your skills will some Ruby Sparring. With Ruby Kata we will code known solutions to simple problems all the while being mindful of our steps and striving to write code of the best possible form. Ruby Sparring will put your skills up against your peers. Exercises will be presented and your solutions will be compete against those of other participants. The challenge may be to solve a problem in the fewest lines of code, or to build a warrior program that will fight with others in Core Wars fashion.
