Event description

Description

At CoderDojo Drogheda our aim is to encourage young people to get into computing and to be really good at it! There are lots of jobs and start up opportunities for good programmers – and as far as we can see there always will be. We are initially focusing on those in second level aged 13-17 but are also accepting those at a younger age if accompanied by a parent.

No prior programming experience is required – if you are honestly interested in computing come along and try it out! Like all Dojos we try to make it relaxed, fun, cool and interesting.

No lectures or classroom approaches here – it’s 100% hands-on coding with the help of volunteer mentors to pass on their knowledge and keep you challenged!

  • Please bring a fully charged laptop if you have one - some computers are available should you not have one.
  • If you don't have a laptop bring a USB key so you can take code & info home with you

  • Tickets are FREE but if you would like to donate all monies will go back into supplies, venue hire, lunch, etc. for the kids attending - organisers and mentors are volunteers and give of their time freely.
