Don't forget the Deadline for the #FutureMakersAwards is tomorrow!
So if you know a 10-17 year old who has coded something that helps others, be sure they enter asap!
@Μαίρη The link to Minecraft Hour of Code content is here You can also see the Disney Moana version here. These help introduce children and young people to the logic behind computer programming. These are very visual and engaging for those beginning, so they can get a taste of how code works before delving into more complex programming languages. These are also available in a lot of diffent languages such as Greek, as Zita mentioned. Also check out our resources page for more.
Have you any specific ideas of what you would like to do in mind?
Thank you very much for your help with this.
@Iraklis-Markelis Hello, I've updated the kata page now to include the Greek version, which you can see here. The Greek version as a PDF is available here!
We've got another content release for you! This time it's more Scratch content, specifically Advanced Scratch Sushi Cards that will help Ninjas build a platformer-style video game. I'm pre-supplying some of the code to get things going faster, but the fun parts are all in the Ninjas' hands:
The cards also end with a series of suggested extra challenges for the Ninjas to try.
Accompanying this release is a matching Advanced Scratch Badge which can be awarded to Ninjas who demonstrate knowledge (which they'll get by finishing the Sushi Cards!) of all of these criteria:
Let me know what you think!
Yohei Yasukawa, co-founder of CoderDojo Japan, explains the learning practices used in Dojos in Japan and about hosting a regional DojoCon in Japan last month.

This category is to discuss Zen. You can post any new features, issues or questions about Zen here!
Hi again @zita
You're on a roll with all this feedback, we love it!
So, if I understand correctly, you're talking about both the Manage Users page and the Manage Event page?
On the Manage Users page, you want to have groupings of each user type, so you can focus on just ninjas or just mentors, etc. Is this correct? Why do you feel the filter options aren't sufficient?
On the Manage Event page, applicants are already broken up into the individual sessions/rooms provided you have created individual sessions when creating your event. Further creating groupings under this may be somewhat difficult to keep clean from a UI/UX point of view. Do you have any rough suggestions on how this might look/work? In the meantime, I noticed that you can only sort the table by Attendee Name or Application Date. I think being able to extend this to Ticket Name and Ticket Type would at least help in the meantime. What do you think?
Before Christmas we published a Global Guide to Safeguarding Young People in Dojos on Kata. You can see the Child Protection Global here.
Adapted from the Irish Child Protection Policy that was released in 2015 it is aimed to give all global mentors an overview of how to recruit volunteers, and volunteer code of behaviour.
Our intention is to adapt this document into a unique mentor on boarding process (integrated with Zen) so all mentors are taken through it as they join Dojos around the world.
Any feedback is always welcome,
