CoderDojo is an open source, volunteer led, global movement of free coding clubs for young kids founded by James Whelton and Bill Liao in 2011. Currently, there are 480 Dojos in 48 countries.
A Dojo is a local, independent, volunteer-led programming club that is a part of the global CoderDojo community. While each Dojo shares the ethos of CoderDojo there is no typical Dojo and the activities run vary from club to club however they all show young people how to code and develop software, as well as themselves, and explore technology by working with others and presenting their work.
All Dojos are inherently different and are influenced by the coordinators and volunteers who facilitate them.
CoderDojo Brisbane is proud to be the first CoderDojo running in Australia and is a Brisbane Marketing initiative of the Digital Brisbane Strategy.
