I've written previously about CoderDoJo, an initiative to get young people interested in computer programming. I attended another session last night, this time held in the Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh.
There was a fantastic turnout, with 27 kids in attendance, although only one girl. The classes are led by Craig Steele and are great fun. Last night Craig focused on HTML 5 programming. The kids seemed to enjoy it. The classes are a great way to get young people involved in coding.
The CoderDoJo scheme has grown significantly since it was first introduced, and is now popular in various countries throughout the world. You can follow CoderDoJo on Twitter.
