CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming and technology clubs for young people. At a dojo, young people, called Ninjas, between the ages 7 and 17 learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, and games. Ninjas explore technology in an informal and creative environment under the guidance of local mentors and professionals.
As of January 2016 there are now over 875+ verified dojos in 63 countries and growing everyday. Learn more about CoderDojo: www.coderdojo.com .
Stuart Bertsch and Keith Instone, founders of Tech Toledo, met with Bill Liao, the co-founder of CoderDojo, during his stop in Toledo. It was inspiring to hear the stories of how CoderDojo had made tremendous strides in computer literacy and programming the world over.
In those initial meetings, Scott Thompson became our Dojo's "champion" and started the very first session of CoderDojo Toledo in August of 2015 with the venue being volunteered by Jeffrey Potter, CEO of a local Toledo business, Potter Technology Group.
