Four Irish students have put together this video which documents the wonderful establishment which is; Coderdojo.

For those of you who don’t know, Coderdojo is an Irish venture, which was founded by James Whelton and Bill Liao. It is a global operation, helping children learn how to code, across the world.

Coderdojo is fun for kids, rewarding for the mentors, and I believe, will have a massively positive effect on our future. By engaging children at an early age, it could well support the future of our IT Industry. Right now, there is a shortage of developers. The fact is, we will need more people to work in this area, especially if Ireland really is going to continue as a Digital Hub of Europe.

This video, allows us to meet some inspiring individuals involved with Coderdojo, and take a look at where it is heading.

If you are inspired, and what to get involved, whether as a student, a mentor, by championing a new local dojo, or by supporting/donating, you should visit; http://coderdojo.com/help-us/
