We are looking for an exceptional Senior Community Manager to join the CoderDojo Foundation team and execute our ambitious growth goals. This newly created position will lead on mobilising and supporting our global community of volunteers and partners, helping us provide new opportunities for hundreds of thousands of young people attending Dojos around the world.
Timetable for applications:
Closing date: Thursday 7th of June 17:00
Face-to-face interviews: 11th – 15th June.
Done very little Python programming but it is so similar to C (syntax etc) that it won’t be difficult to pick up.
This category is to discuss Zen, the CoderDojo Community Platform. You can post any new features, issues or questions about Zen here!
@Remon-Van-Gijn Hi I’m the product manager here. To be honest I’d agree with everything you said basically!
But we won’t have time to address essentially anything with badges in the coming months. However we will be gathering feedback over the next few months like this and deciding on what to do with badging later in the year.
Inclusivity is a core value of the CoderDojo movement. Dojos are encouraged to be accessible to youths from all backgrounds and to strive for gender parity.
Watch the #MakeWhatsNext panel discussion here, with our Executive Director, Giustina Mizzoni. Where the group discuss the latest research by UNESCO, Microsoft, CoderDojo and Accenture into girls engagement in technology and other STEM subjects, and what we are doing to develop this.

It’s Forum Friday again!
A while back I found these Python tutorials created by Matthew Hart of CoderDojo Whitechapel.
The tutorials are interactive and use Trinket, as well as having a PDF option for offline users.
I especially love the if and else lesson with an example using a bar of chocolate, and also the idea of a loop being like dog chasing its tail in the chapter on loops
Have a great weekend everyone
