Finally, the instability issue has been found out. For those curious, it was about how we consider our microservices to be “ready” for requests : if the microservice was considered ready when not fully started, it would drop the request.
That’s now fixed, mostly thanks to @Daniel-Brierton and @Cian-Butler :- ))
This category is to discuss Zen! Whether it be a new feature, a current issue you are having or an idea you want to bounce off other community members just post in here.
The current list of Github issues can be found here >>
If you want to talk about an issue that is already in Github you can link to it in your post. Otherwise we will be able to help you find it or add a new one for you so that we avoid duplication.
We look forward to hearing your feedback.

How do I change the Time on the left? It currently says 7pm-8pm. I have no idea where this got set or how to change it!
@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.
On the User management filter users dropdown there is a small translation bug for Dutch language for 'youth above 13 years".
It says 9in Dutch: “Jongere onder 13 jaar” Needs to be: “Jongere boven 13 jaar”.
Note: please move the the correct forum section; I could not find a translations topic that quickly.
@Jarryd-Townson Hi Jarryd, thanks for getting in touch. Our dev team need to clear out the entries manually. Can you let me know if it’s just the May 4th (Break Free from Expectations (Heather MacKenzie - USA) event you want removed?
Would it be possible to hide old or unnecessary badges for our dojo? There are some badges there for some 2016 events, etc, that aren’t applicable any longer, and there are several resources from coderdojo.com/resources that don’t even have badges. For example:
Our dojo would also like to create our own badges. We’ve introduced our own lessons around 3D design, 3D printing, and some Arduino content, we even have some students writing their own sushi cards that we’d love to assign badges for (both for the students creating the content, and for other students finishing that new content)
I had a quick look and your setup seems good, yet we have errors in our logs regarding the update of your events.
Apart if you tried to sync your events after having revoked the authorization, I’m not sure how this error was triggered, so it seems the issue is on our side :|
I’ll keep you updated.
Happy to dive in.
With ‘other’ I meant to separate the Ux ideas to get quicker to the data I want from these 2.
I see where that dashboard idea would go, and I like it. For me as a user the current zen does not seem to use my role(champion) to expose the data relevant to me unless I explicitly navigate to it.
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 :
Cool, I think finally understood it.
I have 3 ninjas so far, it is what I was expecting.
Thank you for your time.
Richard : that should be solved by now
We’ll monitor if such thing happen again over the next two weeks and see if any further action is necessary.
This month we are running a campaign to encourage people interested in helping young people learn creative technology skills to volunteer at their local Dojo.
Please update your Dojo profile page if your contact details have changed and to highlight if you need Mentors so potential volunteers can contact you easily to help
See how below:
Hey @Zita-Daniel-Nad . I’m the product manager here in CoderDojo foundation.
Just wondering why you want to un-publish past events. Your parents/ninjas don’t see the past events so it won’t confuse them. It’s useful for us to know why people want certain features so we can improve things for you!
Hi Guillaume. Thanks. We are CoderDojo Freo - https://zen.coderdojo.com/dojos/au/fremantle-western-australia/coderdojo-freo
@Guillaume-Feliciano Cool! Thanks. Am delighted!
it should be replace with current street address of dojo instead of old street address
Thanks for getting in touch about that issue.
That is a very valid point and thanks for flagging that with us. It’s great for us to hear about features that our community are having problems with, so that we can improve them! I have passed your feedback on to my colleague who is working on the re-designs for Zen and there should be a number of developments made in the new year to improve the experience of Mentors and Champions.
In the meantime, you can help point any potential volunteers in your local community in the right direction by explaining a little of the CoderDojo lingo to them and by letting them know the role that Mentors play.
I’m glad to hear that you have interest from potential Mentors and best of luck with your upcoming Dojos!
All the best
yes, I answered
@Nuala-McHale No problem on both counts
