Pete: Embarking on a new adventure
After four years, on the 25th of May, Pete O’Shea will be finishing up with us at the CoderDojo Foundation to embark on a new adventure. Pete was one of the first people that I hired at the Foundation and its been a privilege to work with him and watch him grow over this time. He has been a pivotal team member in growing the community team and the supports that we provide to the global community.
“During my time at the Foundation I have had the privilege to meet so many passionate people in the community and collaborate on many different initiatives, both with the community and with external supporters. All of these have been focused in some way on the core ethos of CoderDojo, to give every young person the opportunity to learn about coding and tech in a safe and social environment!
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to join the CoderDojo foundation team back in 2014. My first day of work was straight in to support the CoderDojo stand at the RDS for an event in Dublin where I got to meet both mentors and ninjas from the Irish community. It seems only right to finish up in the same venue supporting the same community! Coolest Projects will be my last day as part of the foundation team, and what a day it will be!
Thank you to all those that took the time to collaborate and work with me and the Foundation to support the community in their region. I will proudly continue to be a part of this amazing movement by running my own Dojo and volunteering with the Coolest Projects implementation team.” – Pete
