CoderDojo is a global collaboration providing free and open learning to young people, especially in computer programming and computer technology. There are now clubs in 22 countries, with 10,000 children learning how to develop websites, games and apps each week.

Origin

Bill Liao and James Whelton founded CoderDojo in 2011[1] as a not-for-profit organisation that teaches kids how to code. It aims to teach kids creative problem-solving skills and practical creative skills and was launched in Ireland in mid 2011. Alongside teaching kids, they also hope to provide an outlet for kids who know how to code to meet other kids with similar interests and work on projects in an environment with their peers around them, similar to how a co-working space works but less formal.

Growth

September 2012 saw the first CoderDojo open in Silicon Valley California[2]
