Hello Bezlo… Coding to catwalk

The Hello Bezlo event is here to merge Fashion and Technology in collaboration with CoderDojo and Zalando. And we are pleased to invite you!

This free event is all about demonstrating how technology can enhance beautiful fashion creations. We have held fashion tech events before but none quite like this!

Aimed at teenage girls with an interest in fashion, we hope to light up your evening with an LED fashion workshop run by our talented fashion designer, followed by speakers from the Zalando team. This event is sure to empower, inspire and educate … Bezlo style.

EU Dojo Brussels – call for Ninja’s and Mentors

The EU Dojo is taking place again this year on the 17th October in the European Parliament in Brussels to celebrate EU Code Week. At the event MEP’s will be taught their first lines of code by CoderDojo youth attendees!

Would you like to attend the event in Brussels and teach the MEP’s a thing or two about coding?

We are specifically looking for young people who are eager to Mentor or who already Mentor at their Dojo. This is a great opportunity for Ninjas to showcase the skills and creativity present in their Dojos to a very important audience of MEPs. We want the Ninjas, Champions and Mentors who attend EU Dojo to show MEPs just how cool coding is and how much fun you have doing it!

If you want to attend talk to one of the Mentors!

CoderDojo Dun Laoghaire Autumn term is here….

We are proposing to restart the Sunday sessions on the 11th of September and the Wednesday sessions on the 14th of September. If you have not attended before please register your interest using the waitlist form on the right (or bottom if viewing on a mobile device) of this page.

Each term we release a limited number of tickets for the available places shortly before the start of the term. Everyone on the waitlist is sent a link to register, places do go quickly.

We are constantly trying to expand the number of places available, which is largely limited to the number of available Mentors.

Note: You can also check with other Dojo’s listed on the www.coderdojo.com website if you are unable to get a slot with us.
