FAQs

What is CoderDojo?

CoderDojo is a worldwide movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.

Do I need to come with a parent?

If you are 13 and under you must be accompanied by a parent during session.

What is going to be covered in typical dojo session?

In our dojo sessions we usually start with code.org and progress into more advanced topics such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python. However if you are interested in a particular area, one of our experienced volunteers might be able to guide you.

Why there are two general sessions?

One session is held in a room with 15 desktop computers whereas the other session is held in the Art Room where there is no equipment provided. You do need to bring your laptop if you are attending the session in the Art Room. We offer two sessions as we would like more ninjas to participate in our coding club.

Do I need to bring anything?

You do need to bring a laptop if you are attending a session in the Art Room.

Do I need a prior knowledge?

No prior knowledge is required only curiousity :)
