After reading the meetup title, I decided to attend. The meetup title was “Hands-on Session: Extreme Carpaccio: slice thin, code fast“.
- Let’s say that I’m a foodie, then I’m Italian and finally a passionate software engineer.
- Let’s say that Carpaccio is a typical dish based on raw fish and meat thinly sliced and served as starter or appetizer.
- Let’s say that the meat Carpaccio is typical from Piedmont, that is the region where I come from.
- Let’s say that I’m interested to improve my agile software developments skills using extreme programming.
This was the perfect occasion!
What is Extreme Carpaccio?
Extreme Carpaccio is a coding game in which teams should slice a given problem and then implement the solution based on their slicing strategy. During an Extreme Carpaccio session a server sends requests to participant’s laptops. Participants should then implement their solution following their slicing strategy in order to satisfy the server.
