Bring on the House

Author: will | Filed under: CoderDojo, conference, Dublin, video, YouTube

Coder Dojo celebrated its first birthday by going to Dublin. In act it went to Leinster House for DáilDojo (The Irish Houses of Parliment and its "lower" house) and have a Dojo between Leinster House itself and Buswells.

A few TDs (Irish Member of Parliament) and Senators showed up, some with their kids, to learn coding. We also had Minister Ciarán Cannon and an Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Enda Kenny. I doubt either of them learned even Scratch, but its a start.

I still want to force a Minister to solve the Blockly Maze demo (no I wasn't let).

    +Will Knott Can I share this with +Ireland (I am one of the page managers)
    BTW A page cannot share even if the post is public unless the poster is following the page/I tag

    That sounds amazing. Pity we didn’t have Coder Dojo when I was young….. but wait now, we didn’t have TV never mind computers when I was growing up. :sad:
