Welcome to the Cedar Valley CoderDojo

We are excited that you are interested in learning to program with our dojo. You can learn a little bit more about us by selecting the About option above.

But the simple summary is that CoderDojo makes learning to code a fun, sociable experience where the two key rules are

  • Be Cool! (Bullying, lying, wasting people's time, and so on are UNcool!)
  • Be Ferocious! (Be willing to explore and try things!)

See you in September!

The Cedar Valley CoderDojo has wrapped up for the 2015-2016 school year. Several of the mentors will be meeting this summer to work on not only our Scratch track of instruction, but to look at additional opportunities for instruction including python based programming of Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi and additional robotics. If you have some interests or ideas, PLEASE let us know. We will start up again in the fall and we currently plan on keeping our current schedule which is the first Saturday of the month at the Cedar Falls Public Library and the third Saturday of the month at the Waterloo Public Library.

See you in the FALL!!
