CoderDojo: a movement of coding clubs for young people

CoderDojo is a movement that started in Ireland, aiming to help children learn computer programming. The meetings in Malmö gather children and youths from all over the city.

So far, the Malmö organizers have focused on three areas: web development, game development and physical computing/Internet of Things. They have also been using the Arduino platform to build light controlled robots.

See below for two videos illustrating the concept, by Medea’s Bo Peterson.

You can read more about the concept on malmo.coderdojo.se and coderdojo.com.
