Cork kids writing computer software code

An article in the Silicon Republic has highlighted a remarkable development in Cork. Hundreds of kids are writing software code in Cork and the phenomenon is about to go global!

According to their website “CoderDojo is a movement orientated around running free not-for-profit coding clubs and regular sessions for young people. At a CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more. Dojos are set up, run by and taught at by volunteers. Dojos organise tours of technology companies, bring in guest speakers to talk about their career and what they do, and organise events.”

CoderDojo was founded by James Whelton and Bill Liao in Cork. It is a not-for-profit organisation. The concept has thrived with Dojos being set up around Ireland and now worldwide. Well done on this great initiative and it’s great to see the IT sector growing from such an early age in Ireland.
