Whoa, we’ve had lots of entries this week using #MyCoolestProject across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
The game can be played by two players or a single player using A and D to rotate the witches sidekick and the arrow keys to rotate the witch W and up arrow key to fire a fire ball. Manik has included lives in the game. You have 3 lives in total every time any one get hit by a monster(s) you lose a life.
There are multiple monsters including ghosts, bats, dragons and many more . Each monster has been coded with its own movement pattern!
Manik will be showcasing his finalised project at Coolest Projects UK in London on April 28th. Well done and we look forward to seeing your project on the day!
Be sure to keep tweeting, and posting what projects you or young people at your Dojo are making using #MyCoolestProject on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. You can now also add your scratch projects to the #MyCoolestProject studio on Scratch here!
Lastly rememeber if you are planning on showcasing your project at Coolest Projects International (in Dublin, Ireland this May) or Coolest Projects UK (London on April 28) then register your projects ahead of the March 25th deadline!
Hi this is Liana from Mindmajix few days back i hear about coderdojo then after i google it, it is very useful for children and they know the programming knowledge at school level and this knowledge is helpful for their future, your conducting a very good program appreciate it.
This category is to discuss Zen, the CoderDojo Community Platform. You can post any new features, issues or questions about Zen here!
We started a blog regarding the evolution of Zen, from a technical (and also functional as @Conor-Murphy is supposed to participate! ) perspective. The frequency should be around once per month. If you’re interested in having a look, that’s the link to our first blog post regarding the architecture we changed last 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.
Happy International Women’s Day to all the awesome, inspirational, smart, creative, fun and wonderful women and girls involved in CoderDojo clubs around the world!
You are not only helping create a more inclusive future through developing skills and projects that cater to more diverse needs, you are also empowering more young girls and women to realise they too can be tech creators!
To celebrate, we’ve released the first in a series of videos, which covers the key points noted in our Empowering the future guide; our is most comprehensive guide to supporting and encouraging girls to get involved in or keep attending their local Dojo.
See the full guide available in English, Italian and Spanish here: coderdojo.com/girlsinitiative
Share your thoughts and advice here on getting set up and organising your Dojo!
My daughter and I are brand new to the CoderDojo and have just started working through the ‘make your own game’ book.
But we are completely stuck on page 10. We have got the console working, but we can’t get a browser to actually run our program.html file.
It opens but just shows all the text from our file in the browser. Doesn’t say ‘Hello World’… and the console just stays blank.
Share your top learning resources and content for learning programming in your Dojo!
I have several kids who are now quite strong with Python. Ideally, I’d like to get them using Python with an SQL database.
I found the Beginner Database sushi cards and installed xampp. It’s got MariaDB inside and not mysql. I figured that might not matter. However, I am getting an
ERROR 1044 (42000): Access denied for user ’ '@‘localhost’ to database ‘CoderDojo’
I’m on Mac. Has anyone done these card recently who knows what needs to be done? I think these would be of interest to my dojo kids this week if I can get them working.
Also - does anyone have good materials to get kids going between Python and MySQL or another relational database?
