Victoria BID is delighted to announce the expansion of CoderDojo classes for young people in the local area.
CoderDojo is a global network of free computer programming clubs for young people. The Telegraph Media Group on Buckingham Palace road started holding these sessions, with the support of Victoria BID, a few years ago and now run four a year. However, due to incredible feedback from the local community, this will increase to six a year in 2018.
CoderDojo (which was established in 2013) believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so! Any young person aged 7 – 17 can join and attend a Dojo for FREE! At a Dojo they will learn skills such as building a website, creating an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
The latest CoderDojo session at the Telegraph Media Group was held on 7th October and attracted over 50 young people, who were joined by their parents, to learn the language of the future!
