Blogged: How to start a successful Coding Dojo
People who arrive on time should be rewarded with an on-time start to get the maximum out of the coding session. Also, respect the timebox when rotating pairs and don’t let the meeting run longer than you planned. As programmers, we are all passionate about making things work, so stopping half-way through a solution is not an easy ask. However, the goal of the Coding Dojo is to learn from each other and not to finish the entire Kata. I would much rather save the last 15 minutes for the group retrospective to discuss what we learned than having a few more rounds of coding without a wrap-up at the end.
