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!)

Coming Soon

The Cedar Valley CoderDojo is getting ready to kick off for the 2016-2017 school year.

This year we will be meeting less frequently by only meeting the 1st Saturday of the month (October through May) at the Cedar Falls Public Library from 1:00-3:00 PM. In addition to our ongoing work with and Scratch we will feature a rotating monthly project with additional opportunities including python based programming of Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi and additional robotics. If you have some interests or ideas, PLEASE let us know.
