Free event: Jon Jagger’s Cyber Dojo. June 20th.

A CyberDojo is a great practice environment for learning about coding, test driven development, team dynamics, and collaboration.

In a CyberDojo the players work in small groups each group works at a single computer each group writes their code and their test-code totally inside a web browser each group submits their code and test-code to the CyberDojo server as often as they wish the CyberDojo server saves the submission, runs the tests, and returns the test-outcome to the browser.
