CoderDojo is a movement oriented around running free, not-for-profit coding clubs for young people ages 8 – 15. At a CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more. Dojos are set up, run, and led by volunteers. Dojos might organize tours of technology companies, bring in guest speakers to talk about their career and what they do, and organize events. In addition to learning to code, members meet like-minded people and show off what they’ve been working on. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable, awesome experience. CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.
