Venue reminder

Skills Matter are our hosts and have recently moved to Code Node a great new venue between Moorgate and Liverpool St. stations. Full venue and registration details are given below.

Agenda

Festive CodeWarsJam

Sam Joseph is going to lead us through a practical exercise he calls "CodeWarsJam". He describes it as follows:

A CodeWarsJam is a session where small teams of coders work on the same coding problem together. The problems are usually relatively simple and can be reviewed as a group every 20 minutes or so. Recently at MakersAcademy we've had great fun with CodeWarsJams, where we take coding kata from http://codewars.com and use them to run a CodeWarsJam. CodeWarsJam is great because when you solve a problem you get to see all the other variant solutions that others have coded, sorted by popularity. Come join the festive coding fun as LRUG's first CodeWarsJam!

The organisers of Beyond, a conference aimed at junior developers in London on 23rd November, have provided a pair of free tickets for 1 lucky LRUG member and a discount code for £90 off the ticket price for everyone else.

Registration

To secure a place at the meeting you must register with our hosts Skills Matter. It helps to make sure we have the room laid out with enough chairs, and in extreme cases that we get priority on the larger rooms over other groups using the space on the same night. Also, it's polite (don't forget MINASWAN), so please do register with Skills Matter.

You can also follow this meeting on lanyrd, but this is not a meaningful way to tell us you wish to attend. It's just for the lols, innit?
