In 2012 I worked for Kuehne & Nagel in Hamburg. They do agile software development and follow “Clean Code”. They invited me to take part on a company sponsored code retreat in April. So I stayed the weekend in Hamburg to hone my programming skills and to spend more time with my new coworkers. Thank you so much for this great opportunity!
I never took a deeper look into Conways Game of Life before, so I was astonished about how much complexity can emerge from such a small set of simple rules (think fractals).
On rule of a code retreat was to start each 45 min round from scratch with a new partner. So we could not finish the exercise. So the next day I completed the exercise with a running version.
