Basic slide deck about CoderDojo
CoderDojo, the volunteer led movement of free coding
clubs for young people aged 7 to 17
Where it all started
In June 2011 the first CoderDojo took place in
County Cork, Ireland, ran by co-founders Bill Liao
& James Whelton
Demand was massive and the movement spread rapidly around the world
from the West Coast of America to Japan and Australia!
So What is a Dojo?
At Dojos young people learn how to hack, code, build
websites, apps, games and more all in a fun, social and
collaborative environment all for free!
Children are mentored by volunteers passionate about
children being given the opportunity to learn code.
Emphasis is put on peer to peer mentoring & open source.
Industry Globally there is a massive shortage of programmers to fill thousands of vacant
jobs. This issue aﬀects every industry because technology is transforming how
every industry communicates & collaborates.
Education Currently Code education is not readily accessible for children. Learning code
also teaches creative and logical problem solving skills to young people skills
necessary for the 21st Century!
Society Theres a major gender imbalance within the technology sector but also a lack
of community, recognition & platform for young coders. CoderDojo turns
coding into a social hobby for young people!
