Austin Software Craftsmanship

The Austin Software Craftsmanship Meetup holds a Coding Dojo once a quarter (next dojo Jan 2019). We use Cyber-Dojo as a platform in order to support multiple languages and test frameworks. Join us on Meetup for more info. Our dojo is run “Glasgow style”, with pairs working together on their own laptops, all on the same kata but not necessarily all on the same language. Open to all experience levels; if you’re interested in improving your craft, we want you!


Welcome to Codenjoy!

We named our version Codenjoy (Code + Enjoy). It was an interesting format, and we shared it everywhere we were invited. Later, the Codenjoy community divided into ‘senseis’, or organizers, programmers who write code, and contributors who add their own games. Participants get feedback based on the game results. Think your development methodology is great? Let’s try it in a tournament. That’s how I stopped telling people how TDD is faster.

Developers get together and start doing ‘katas’ — basic tasks that are repeated to improve their mastery of engineering. In martial arts, a kata is a series of movements against an imaginary opponent. Coding Dojo has various forms, like Codenjoy — coding for fun. Participants create bots that compete in real time in basic games like Tetris, Battlecity, Snake, Sudoku, Minesweeper, Moebius, etc.

You just write an algorithm that will play old school games. Try to defeat the opponent. Lost? Learn something new from this. There are about 30 games in Codenjoy.


Coders Dojo Sweden started in October 2006. AndreasLarsson and ThomasNilsson from Responsive Development Techology ( picked up the idea at XP2006 in Oulu, Finland. We thought it would be intresting to try this in Linköping, Sweden. We meet bi-weekly, participation is free and there is no need to register. If the group is larger than twelve persons we simply split into two groups. We normally have 10-12 participants. Visit our site at dojo.

The Oklahoma City Coding Dojo does not currently have a website, we do however meet at the [OkcCoCo] on a somewhat regular basis. We typically use the RandoriKata style and have used C#, Java, Scala, and Ruby for the katas. We may work on our own personal laptops depending on how the attendance is for that night.
