The CoderDojo movement believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so. To that end, Coder Dojo established a global network of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
Philosophy of Coder Dojo
The club has endeavoured to promote social inclusion message and includes asylum seekers and travellers amongst its learners (ninjas). It has broadened its membership base to include teenagers and teen-centric sessions. It has a volunteer ethos, a local community structure and commitment towards upskilling the youth of Ireland.
Technology is rapidly changing the world we live in. Every day, new innovations are developed that further integrates technology into our everyday lives. We don’t know what the world will look like in 10 years, but we know that world will be powered by code!
