Learn To Code CoderDojo Style

Help us develop a website to share your code knowledge with hundreds! Register at http://www.learntocode.eu

As many of you are aware Code EU week runs from the 25th to the 30th of November so we’re looking for CoderDojo attendees, mentors and champions everywhere (not just in the EU!)  Learn to Code EU is a real time website where people can practice and learn coding skills with help from CoderDojo members! We wanted to build something to mark the week that could have a lasting legacy!  

The Challenge! CoderDojo members everywhere; get involved and help us build our new website for Code EU http://www.learntocode.eu Login and using HTML & CSS code or just write free text to share with others what cool code and techniques you have learned at your Dojo.  Every member who registers will get a section on the webpage to  make their own section on the page.

The website allows members register / login:

  • Add HTML code where they can teach others what they have learned at CoderDojo

  • Members can write about any language to teach others

  • Add CSS to style their HTML and make it look cool

  • Once saved, their lessons would be appear on the webpage

  • These lessons will help others to start coding, CoderDojo style

Where did the idea come from? This website was the brainchild of CoderDojo DCU member Niamh who wanted to build a website which taught others, including CoderDojo members, how to code as her submission for this years CoderDojo Coolest Projects Awards.  

The Aim! We’re aiming to get hundreds of CoderDojo members from all over the world to get involved and teach others how to code.  The aim is that a website created by CoderDojo members globally ends up teaching a range of languages from Scratch to HTML to Java.  This is all about sharing your knowledge and passion!  This is an unique opportunity to share your insight and knowledge with the global development community and inspire others to start coding.

Well done Niamh and thanks for your amazing contribution we can’t wait to see how CoderDojo members help extend your idea!

The top 5 cool entries will be selected for the website and you will receive  a CoderDojo T-Shirt and stickers. So get coding and share.
