A new CoderDojo opens in Bosnia and Herzegovina!

We heard out about CoderDojo initially through the Dojo that runs in Timisoara, Romania. After we heard about what they had been doing and the local benefits we decided to organise our own Dojo in Sarajevo. During the summer, kids are free from school so we felt this was a great time for them to learn coding! Our first Dojo event had 130 participants. At the Dojo, Ninjas learned to code in Python. Twenty of the CoderDojo Mentors are students from the University of Sarajevo. We held Dojo events at the Faculty Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Faculty of Electrical… Read More

17 August 2017 · by Pete O'Shea

Youth ninja, Alexa, from Rockville CoderDojo recently ran a Raspberry Jam as an activity at her local Dojo. A Raspberry Jam is the pun-tastic name given to a meetup of people interested in making things with a Raspberry Pi computer! A Jam is a meeting of all kinds of people: some will be new to physical computing, and some will have plenty of experience that they are happy to share and this is why it is a perfect addition to a Dojo session!
