A coding workshop (coding kata) to help learn the tricks of the trade to hep build reliable software.

We have been using kata workshops as a method to teach, mentor, coach and practice these techniques.

During the workshop we will be demonstrating TDD, refactoring along with a few SOLID principles (see references below for more details)

Any level of programming experience is welcome, regardless if you are a coding guru or just you have an interest in learning how to program.
