Hey Mark, we’ve tested the new flow with parents and it seems to be quite easy as it’s one flow now. I realise previously you had to explain adding kids etc. but now it’s a lot more straightforward. If there’s anything else we can do to simplify it please do say so!
I’m the champion of CoderDojo Nafpaktos and I would like to make some changes. I want to change the name to CoderDojo Patra and register a new location. Do I have the permission and if yes what do I have to do to make the changes? I understand that I’ll have to change the info on the CoderDojo platform but there are other issues such as the e-mail address that you gave me. Please help me on that. Thank you!
I also need to know how I can delete a Dojo that I currently run by 2019.
It sounds like your browser is treating your code as text, which is usually down to the extension (the .html part) on the file being incorrect or missing. If you’re using a text editor like Atom, VS Code or Sublime, you can usually spot this because the code isn’t highlighting properly.
If you are using a coding text editor, fixing this should be as simple as choosing File > Save As and then making sure you enter the full filename (program.html) in the dialogue box.
If you’re using Notepad on Windows, or TextEdit on Mac, you can follow these instructions.
You don’t have to re-type your code in any case, even if you have to move to a new file (which may be the case if you’re using TextEdit), you can just copy-paste it.
Hi @Loay-Abdul-Mageed! We will download and integrate the translation you’ve done in CrowdIn once you’re done and I’ll work on converting them myself. Arabic will be our first attempt at a right-to-left language, so there may be some issues with getting them laid out initially. I might need you to review my work!
For languages other than Scratch have a different translation process and we use a piece of software to create them that does not presently support right-to-left languages. We are in the process of moving to a new tool that will, but that will take us a few months. That said, we’re happy to work with you on trying to use the existing templates to get the right translations in place, even if they do look a little odd on screen. Your best bet would be to join our Global Slack (http://dojo.soy/slack) and message me for assistance there. I’ll be able to link you videos, answer questions and even do short calls if we need to!
Our first Dojo is this Saturday, the 27th of January. I have seen a few posts or references to a Swag Package with stickers and a poster, but I have not been able to figure out how to request one.
I am specifically hoping to get some Coder Dojo stickers to thank our ninjas for attending the first session. Thanks in advance for your help!
Can you mail the Dojo name and the URL to email@example.com
It should be solved by now, sorry for the inconvenience !
Hi Guys,I’m Aravindh from India.This is first coderdojo event hosted by me on Dec 23rd.I hope plz give support and tips to me to make this event more fun and interesting.
At the end of October we have create a Dojo in Alcanede - Portugal , a small village located in a rural area, with none activities for the children and we (me, other IT teacher and some local persons) decide to face the challenge to open a Dojo.
We would like to disseminate the Dojo and starting to prepare our first activity but it disappear from my profile.
We already had it in the map. Please see here.
I also receive the email confirmation :
Your username: firstname.lastname@example.org. But this week I was in Bristol and I miss the 48 hours to confirm the email. So I couldn ´t confirm, maybe this was the problem?
Can you please help. Shall I fill the form again to create a Dojo?
Thanks a lot for your support.
Tried that, it all looks a bit messy I “upped” the number of tickets to the number of sessions per term. I was afraid then as it said we had 120 tickets available, not the 20 capacity that we can only take in the room.
I edited the no of tickets by 20 for the next session. As I said it looks a bit messy as I it shows a very long list of persons checked in for previous session and the new session but its not obvious.
Will I need to up the tickets after every session, for the next session?
Oracle has assigned (not donated) reasonable speced laptops (4 year old i5 8Gb) (good enough for unity). This may confuse unity3d license more. Definitely do not want Oracle to be contacted with regards to Unity licensing. Dublin3@Oracle is a very small dojo and relies on good will from (invisibility to) Oracle. Will not do Unity in the dojo if there is any doubt.
Semi detailed notes:
Supplies a few laptops so people without can be accommodated. The Oracle Corporate Social Responsability line is so local people (Dublin 3 has some poor areas) do not have to bring laptops [ and also the laptops they bring may not be fast/recent enough for Unity ] , It is really just a few people would be ready for Unity - or would at least be encouraged to eventually use Unity.
As I see it:
Unity / c# - best/most videos to click along to
My reading of the license: Educational license - need to be a school university - pretty liberal, However if ‘the thing’ (I fear they will say Oracle) - over 100000 revenue - different rules - under 100000 revenue - pretty liberal (probably a cut in revenue if you ever release). 35/45 per month outside the fairly liberal educational/under 100000 limits (not good for meets/uses twice a month ninja in a dojo session, would be almost worth it for a more intensive Easter / Summer run for/pay for an intensive week of sessions).
Unreal/C++ - most challenging (C++ memory management for example) (I did C commercially (last century…) C++ would be a good skill for very fast programs (OS/games) but takes time to get right.
My reading of the license Has EULA 5% on revenue over 3000.
jmonkey/Java - distant 3rd place (Though I am a java programmer so might be ‘easiest’ for me to follow.)
License - BSD license (license details got from wikipedia) - do whatever you like (contain prominent copyright notice of where you got it from).
All have a ‘serious language’ for the game maker and produce good results. I will probably let them click along to a simple example - and let them change a few things (more baddies, different weapons, slightly different art/colour) so the ‘on ramp’ is not too big.
In many cases Dojos are set-up and run by volunteers. However, it is great that you have the resources to be able to offer this to a Dojo mentor. There is a chance to approach a corporate organisation in the area about this too, as they might provide volunteers as part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives to help out at the Dojo.
I would also reach out to local educational institutes, corporates and tech networks to spread the word, and I’m sure you will be able to fill the spot. Have you been in touch with @Craig-Steele or Martin from the CoderDojo Scotland team? They may also be able to help spread the word in the local network.
@Russell-Pearson, apologies for the cancellation of the last event. It was our first and hopefully last cancellation. We have updated our CoderDojo Zen page with our next event on the 22nd of July. We hope to see you there!
@Guillaume-Feliciano ok Tks

I’ve been digging a bit and it looks like it’s a bug with NodeBB (https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues/5219) .
We’ll try to do an update of the forums and keep you updated.
@Iraklis-Markelis reset the password there, which i sent to you on a private chat message (see chats on the top right below the ‘community’ dropdown). Let me know how you get on
