The second Global Day of Coderetreat will take place on 8 December 2012, and South Africa will join the initiative with events in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

The latest Coderetreat initiative is expected to attract over 3,000 software developers in 200 cities across 14 time zones, creating a worldwide network of people focussed on programming excellence.

According to Wallis Buchan of Dev2, Coderetreat is an intensive practice workshop that provides a great skills development platform.

“We hosted Durban’s first Coderetreat in July this year and it proved to be a great success. So when the Global Day of Coderetreat was announced online, we jumped at the opportunity and signed up as a host company to ensure that Durban developers would be able to participate in this worldwide initiative,” said Buchan.

“Coderetreat appeals across the board to a wide audience from beginners to experts. An ideal networking opportunity, there will be a strong focus on stretching participants’ abilities and to encourage dynamic and unusual solutions.”

The Durban Coderetreat will take place at Dev2 at the Bellevue Campus in Kloof and will run from 08h30 to 17h00.

Limited places are available, so register now on http://dev2coderetreat.eventbrite.com to book your seat.  A R100 refundable deposit is required when booking. Participants need to bring their own laptops.
