What is Dojo?
The term means ‘place of the Way’ in Japanese. The concept has been traditionally applied in martial arts and meditation, and with the constant changes to modern technology, the concept has been increasingly adopted in software development.
Coding Dojos are a powerful vehicle to speed up the team’s transformation and lead their way to become a stronger product team. As in Dojo for martial arts, the students are instructed by teachers to achieve a skill mastery; the similar is how a coding Dojo is set up! The teams work with Product and Technical coaches for six weeks where they are coached on Lean, Agile, Product Mindset and Software Engineering practices while working on their actual backlogs. Teams develop long lasting skills through repetition and deliberate practice during short, hyper-iterations.
The quote from Xun Kuang best describes the essence of Immersive Learning: “Tell me and I will forget. Teach me and I will remember. Involve me and I will learn.”
Establishing Dojos at my firm has been my goal from past couple years where I served as a Product Coach. In this time, I have coached over 15 teams and have learned about the model in depth. I have also shared our transformational journey at many platforms, including external presentations at conferences like AgileDC 2019.
I bring to you this session on Coding Dojos with the goal to share the model concepts and my learnings along the way. During this session, we will explore the Coding Dojo’s in detail, core principles, the flow, some common practices adopted, transformational outcome of our teams and much more!
Key outcomes of this session:
- What is coding Dojo
- How does it work
- What are Hyper-Iterations
- How did it help transform teams
- Does it support today’s needs? Remote Dojo?
You are welcome to RSVP here or on Meetup.
