What is CoderDojo?

CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs for young people aged 7 to 17. We are the Melbourne chapter of this amazing initiative! There are 1100+ dojos in 63+ countries worldwide now.

What is the difference between CoderDojo Melbourne, and individual dojos like Inspire9 in Richmond?

CoderDojo Melbourne is the umbrella entity that helps promote CoderDojo around the Melbourne area. CoderDojo Melbourne helps set up new dojos, offers advice etc. It also serves as a single point of contact for all the dojos in Melbourne
