About

We help others practice programming, software development and communication skills by making coding laboratories open to any programming language where cooperation is valued over competition, doing and sharing are valued over teaching, and where competing solutions come with discussing and understanding tradeoffs.

Meet people

Work in pair.
It’s not a contest.

Pick your language

Open to any programming language.
Code and test directly on the browser.

Solve challenges

Solve 3 self-contained problems.
Find, discuss and understand solutions.

How it works

  • Doors open

    People arrive and meet. The Coding Gym trainer gives them a warm welcome!


  • Begin Loop

  • Pairing off

    People pair off, agree on a programming language and seat side by side.

  • Hands on a challenge

    The attendees work in pair on a coding challenge: they can code and try solutions directly on the browser. In the meantime, the trainer peeks at what they are doing and gives hints if someone gets stuck.


  • 30 minutes…

  • The retrospective

    The trainer opens a discussion on the solutions found and some volounteers explain theirs. People scrutinize tradeoffs and decisions taken. Then, the trainer changes some constraints of the problem and people discuss about the implications.

  • Repeat
    3
    times!

  • The End!
