CoderDojo Collaborative

 Learn to code for free at the CoderDojo Collaborative!  The CoderDojo Collaborative in San Antonio is part of the movement that believes all need the opportunity to learn programming languages and cyber security in the modern world.

CoderDojo is a global network of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can join a Dojo where they can learn to code and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment. 


 

CoderDojo was founded July 23, 2011 by James Whelt & Bill Liao in NSC Cork, Ireland. James and Bill were self-taught programmers and wanted to create a space where young people could learn code in a social environment. In less than one year, the CoderDojo movement was spread across Ireland and other cities like London, England and San Francisco, USA.


In 2016, Malene Lawrence and Nikole Vaughn founded the CoderDojo Collaborative to establish a place in San Antonio for their kids and others to code. The San Antonio Library housed the dojo for one term until it grew too large.  San Antonio College was the first location to offer a permanent home with multiple computer labs to the CoderDojo Collaborative free of charge.


Since 2018, a host of Champions and Mentors joined talents to keep the Dojo alive in San Antonio, Texas.
