Application is open to host DojoCon 2016!


Once again it’s that time of the year! We are looking for Dojos to express their interest in hosting DojoCon 2016, the global CoderDojo mentors conference. It’s an important event in the CoderDojo year and we appreciate all those that take the time to apply and for considering to organise this event! DojoCon,  a conference for the community of CoderDojo volunteers, presents a fantastic opportunity to connect the generous and kind people who are at the core of the movement and to further develop how CoderDojo operates worldwide. At the event, ideas are shared both from within the movement and from industry leaders through keynote talks and through workshops to develop new ways to inspire at CoderDojo.

All you have to do is give us your details via the form below and we will send on the proposal template.
