Last Years Event: EU Dojo 2015

On September 30th, the third annual #EUDojo event hosted by CoderDojo and Seán Kelly MEP took place in the EU Parliament in Brussels. Over 60 CoderDojo Youths,  Mentors, Champions and Parents from across the EU were invited to participate.  The young coders from countries including Ireland, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Italy and the UK were welcomed to Brussels to showcase their coding and technology skills and to teach some MEPs how to write a few lines of code. With ages ranging from 7 upwards, the young people amazed participants with their knowledge and ability.

I'm confused about the timing.
Will EU Dojo take place on October 17 (as per "Get Involved" paragraph) or 18 (as per the subtitle)?

Hi Stefano,
thank you for commenting. That was a typo in the Get Involved part. EU Dojo will be held on Tuesday the 18th of October. Apologies for the confusion!
