Mark Ward, the CoderDojo Coordinator for the Ballyroan Public Library in Dublin, Ireland, tells us about the coding club using the library’s facilities. Simply by playing games, children learn how to code computer programmes and mobile apps. “These are skills that will take them into IT jobs or into business later in life”, Mr Ward says. In the library, the children are empowered to do what they want.
The highly successful Irish led CoderDojo, global network of computer clubs, is a place for young people to learn to code, develop websites, apps, games and more. Since the first Dojo opened its doors only a year ago, CoderDojo has come a very long way with thousands of CoderDojo members learning valuable skills. The number of CoderDojo members is growing rapidly each week as new Dojos open up all over the world. As well as already having a number of clubs in Ireland, CoderDojo has recently seen a club open in Silicon Valley in California. Silicon Valley is home to many of the world's largest technology corporations and is a significant mark on the expansion of CoderDojo as it is so rare for an Irish tech brand to be imported into the United States. Mentors volunteer to help ...

Started just three years ago CoderDojo is already something of a phenomenon, with hundreds of classes setting up around the world.
