Hear Uncle Bob Sing An Ode to Floyd


Over the past two years, we've met in Floyd, Virginia, and spent the weekend sharing, practicing and honing our craft. Based on the successes of the past two years, we are continuing this proud tradition.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Floyd is a small mountain town with class.

Polyglot Environment

Bring your language of choice, find a pair, and experiment with new languages. Last year Clojure, Ruby, C, C#, and Javacript were used.


Arrive Friday for a welcome reception and a night out in Floyd town.

Saturday Coderetreat at Sun Music Hall in downtown Floyd. We'll then move to Apple Ridge for a full catered pizza/beer social Saturday night and more pair programming on Sunday. We'll be providing delicious local, organic food and snacks throughout the weekend.
