I have gotten the green light from management about organizing a Study Group for following the Chapters of specific programming book, and also U have communicated back to the team.

What else should I do?

Should we just seat together and start following the book together?

From other people's experience, I would like get the dynamics of the actual group together.

  • We are using the Company's meeting room
  • We have a physical book at the company
  • We have the digital copy in the company
  • most developers have notebooks.

We will have one and a half hour once a week.


  • Learn the Topic of the Book, since it has a lot of exercises, do the exercises. What is not clear to me is if we read together, or how we go over the explanations, etc...

  • Team Build, having developers together self organizing the group

  • Create a feeling of learning, and show that company is investing on them, since we are authorized to use paid time to do the group.

The last time I did this:

  • There were novices reading the book to learn the subject
  • There were also experts (who already knew the whole subject and the book) participating
  • We read about a chapter or two per week (in our own time)
  • The communal "discussion" was to ask and answer any questions anyone might have about the chapter

Since everyone in your study group works for the same company, you might find it good to use your time together to discuss how to apply what you read in the book to a shared development project.

I might also (though I don't know how to tie this into a study group) recommend you look at a well-written real-world example of whatever the book is describing.
