Internal Legacy Coderetreat

Expand your mind and your problem-solving skills while working with legacy code through deliberate practice

A legacy coderetreat is a deliberate practice workshop that lasts a whole day. It improves your team’s skills as we focus on pair-programming, refactoring techniques, unit testing, code design, and team communication. The legacy coderetreat is based on the coderetreat format, and it is held all over the world as a community event. It proved to be an excellent skill development and team-building exercise with massive benefits for attendees.
