[frame_left][/frame_left]TSSG are delighted to welcome back the CoderDojo group this September for their 2nd round of Coderdojo workshops which will commence Saturday 25th of August at ArcLabs in Carriganore, Waterford.

The CoderDojo is a not-for-profit community computer club project first set up by James Whelton and Bill Liao in Cork in 2011, and is managed and run by a group of volunteers. The club teaches young people basic knowledge around coding, developing websites, apps, programs, and games. In addition to learning code, members meet other likeminded people and collaborate on group projects. The aim of the CoderDojo is to make learning code a fun and sociable activity. The CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.

Earlier this year, the TSSG hosted the first wave of CoderDojo courses every Saturday 12-3pm, between April to June of this year. Many TSSG staff volunteered their time and knowledge and acted as mentors, teaching, and answering questions and helping however they could. TSSG provided essential equipment and infrastructure services including Wifi AP’s, extension reels, extension leads, projectors and projector screens to ensure the classes ran smoothly. Now, due to popular uptake and demand, the CoderDojo workshops will recommence on Saturday 25th August.
