Randori Session Format


  • A coding challenge and coding language and environment is announced beforehand.
  • We meet in a room with a laptop attached to a video projector.

Rules of Randori Session

  • The presenter explains the coding challenge and starts the Randori with a pair from audience.
  • The pair will use TDD (Test-Driven Development).
  • One half of the pair is changed every 5 minutes.
  • The pair on the keyboard should continuously explain what they are doing.
  • The pair on the keyboard should stop when someone from the audience falls off the sled — and only continue when that someone is back on track again.


The dojo is typically a two-hour session following this rough agenda:
16:00 - 16:15 Introduction to the Coder's Dojo and this session's coding challenge
16:15 - 17:00 Coding
17:00 - 17:10 Break
17:10 - 17:50 Coding
17:50 - 18:00 Retrospective

The rules and agenda presented here are preliminary and will be refactored based on experience.
