What is CoderDojo?

CoderDojo is a volunteer led, open source movement of free not-for-profit coding clubs for young people aged between 7 and 17. At Dojo’s young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, games and more in a social, open learning environment. Started three years ago, CoderDojo has spread to over 400 locations in 40 countries around the world. For more information see www.coderdojo.com.
