From 2009 to 2014, I traveled the world working with software developers, both individually and in teams, to improve their craft. I did this primarily through a training workshop format called coderetreatі. During these day-long events, we worked on improving our ability to make good choices around the minute-by-minute decisions we make while writing. Over those years, I watched thousands of pairs of programmers work on exactly the same system, Conway’s Game of Life⁴. As a facilitator of these coderetreat workshops, I had the unique opportunity to provide feedback, both direct and through questions, on improving the act of writing adaptable, simple code. As time progressed, I began to see patterns arise, common techniques and designs that spanned languages, stayed the same between companies, and crossed national borders.
