To improve
  • Simpler problem
  • Staged challenge progression
  • Longer sessions
  • Use retrospective
  • 2 iterations of code (2x30') --> 1 very simple to try the process, 1 more complicated to awaken the team
  • A small debrief between iterations (15')
  • Explain sudoku
  • Less dependent on the language (I know it's hard)
  • move time for reflection
