CoderDojo Sunshine Coast

CoderDojo

The global network of free computer programming clubs for young people.

At a Dojo, young people between 7 and 17 learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and much more. In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what they’ve been working on and learn new things.

CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable and awesome experience. CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.

CoderDojo has just one rule: "Above All: Be Cool", bullying, lying, wasting people’s time is uncool.

So what IS Coder Dojo? Coder Dojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based coding clubs for young people between the ages of 7 and 17. Here at CoderDojo we learn how to code, develop websites, apps, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. Emphasis on the informal, we prefer you think of Sunshine Coast CoderDojo as a club with mentors, rather than a classroom with instructors.

At Sunshine Coast CoderDojo we rely heavily on free web-based software, particularly Scratch, Codecademy and many others. Our focus is to facilitate what ever it is the Ninjas want to learn, we have no syllabus or curriculum and we encourage peer-led education as much as we can.

ALL CHILDREN MUST BRING THEIR OWN LAPTOP.

Though everything we do is web-based, we are a not for profit organisation and DO NOT provide laptops/computers for children’s use. If you only have a tablet and wish to come, contact us on facebook or by email and we will let you know what your options are.

To sign up please register on Zen https://zen.coderdojo.com and join the Dojo you wish to visit.
