PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGES FOR CODERDOJO
Please note we have changed our CoderDojo session in DCU to a 4 hours now and are splitting this time between beginners and advanced.
- Beginners (12-13:45 pm) are those who are only at CoderDojo since January and have been doing the introductory HTML course
- Advanced (14:00-16:00 pm) are those who have been at CoderDojo before December
For now can you please fit into the desire group and times, once the beginners group finish the penalty shoot out game everyone will be at a similar level and we can then integrate the groups better. We will run both sessions in our room above the main cateen.
If anyone has any queries can you please contact me.

What is Coder Dojo?
We hacked together a cool hangout that puts the real power of the internet and technology in the hands of the Irish youth. The true power of the net comes from coding, designing and having fun. CoderDojo is a place where you can learn from others and share what you are doing! Each week we have a hands on session with technologies like HTML5, App Development, PHP or Python.
CoderDojo is aimed at ages 10 -18 years. You need to bring a laptop (if at all possible) and a pack lunch.
Only those attending need register, parents need not.
The event will take place above the canteen, so you will need to enter from the rear of the canteen. This access will be from the back road in DCU between the back of the Heilx and the President's Office.
Please join our google group as all communication will go out over this platform
Code is available at

Any questions can you please put them through the googlegroup (coderdojo-dcu).
