Fine tune your development techniqueJoin a session
Go through a realistic coding challenge designed to put your design skills to the test.
Each session is recorded so you can compare your time and technique with others.
Discover key insights on what makes someone faster.
The BeFaster workshop is a full-day intensive training workshop where you focus on improving your development technique.
It uses a data driven approach to personal improvement.
You go through a realistic coding challenge designed to put your design skills to the test. After that we sit back and analyse each approach.
You will improve your development technique by:
You will work on an individual coding challenge inspired by a real business problem. The domain is well known and easy to relate to.
The exercise contains multiple rounds with changing requirements so will put your design and refactoring skills to the test.
You will be using your laptop and your IDE of choice.
Lunch will be provided. Please let me know if you have any special dietary requests or restrictions.
After lunch we look at the results from the coding session.
Each participant gets the chance to describe their thought process. You get to present how your code evolved through rounds and why. The other participants will offer suggestions and you will engage in constructive conversations about your code.
By seeing other people’s approaches you will discover things that you’re not aware of.
During the exercise I found it interesting how my design decisions affected my speed and how much tests helped.
The feedback afterwards highlighted things that that were not obvious at the time.
It is an interesting real life problem and not a trivial task.
It was interesting to view other people’s techniques, styles of code and thought processes.
It simulates really well a situation that every developer faces.
During the technique review it was cool to see how code evolves when requirements are changing.
