Exercising with Code Katas by Pragmatic Dave

Check this out:

Some implementations are popping up on popular blogs, some in Ruby, some in Python. It's pretty interesting.

Didn't realize he or his writing partner had a blog.  Very cool.  Thanks for the link!

I'm currently learning the Isshinryu Seisan Kata, so this subject line caught my attention...

Seeing as how I'm also a programmer, the idea of code kata is an interesting thought...

I think it's a great idea to take a structured approach to practicing coding. I usually build my own apps for fun and to learn certain techniques/patterns but I wish I had a Guru to look over my work and give me more insight into better practices.

At my old employer we had one such Guru on staff who's main purpose was to teach better techniques and propogate them to the staff. I miss those days.
