From time to time it is important to get out of our comfort zone to achieve better results.
Damir Majer was our trainer this time and he had a lot of challenges prepared for us.
The business case was to develop a tic tac toe game in ABAP.
Each team had a time slot for developing and need to switch the active developer after a set time.
After each new pair-programming round you had to delete all your beautiful created code. It’s like the worst feeling on earth, but its was obligatory. So teams are starting each time from scratch.
They are several possibilities to learn something on this community event.
For example why is pair programming a very power full way of creating better software and how, using TDD, to create a safety net for further developments or even how NOT to use a mouse for developing and learn the shortcuts of your IDE 🙂
I can encourage every ABAP developer to take the possibility and attend to an ABAP CodeRetreat next time.
This time the event was hosted by objective partner AG in Weinheim/Germany.
See you next time in Weinheim
