What I like about it

  • Well prepared, easy example allowed focus on the topic (coding is fun) (tried something like this myself once with a complex example, which did not work at all)
  • Good concept
  • They were good sports about doing what people wrote on the slips of paper
  • This session is to programming what "waiting for godot" is for the theatre, funny and magic
  • Very funny, good laugh
  • Pair programming can be fun
  • It was fun
  • Philosophy for developers
  • Te courage to sit down and let it all happen
  • Fun & code & fun
  • It was fun
  • Good fun, lots of code

To improve

  • Heal the chicken's eye
  • A little more structure after the dojo when reflecting what happened
  • Less coding, more philosophy
  • Would make it more interactive
  • More interaction with the public
  • Keep it short(er) e.g. 60 min
  • Wear 2 clown's nose
  • Involve session attendees as programmers instead of having them just wait
  • Reserve more time for the discussion
  • Ask people for rules driving the session. Now, it was not interactive at all
  • Add a learning element
  • Explain the setup a bit more upfront
  • A bit more interaction with the audience
