What is CoderDojo?

CoderDojo is a volunteer led, open source movement of running free not-for-profit coding clubs for young people aged between 6 and 17.  At Dojo’s young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, games and more in a social, open learning environment. Started two years ago, CoderDojo has spread to over 250 locations in 30 countries around the world. For more information see
