CoderDojo is a global collaboration providing free and open learning to young people, especially in programming technology. The first CoderDojo launched in Ireland in June 2011. CoderDojo's can now be found in over 30 countries. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun and sociable experience. CoderDojo also puts an emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.
At a CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more. Dojos are set up, run by and taught at by volunteers. Dojos organise tours of technology companies, bring in guest speakers to talk about their career and what they do, and organise events. In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what they have been working on and share ideas.
