Cant seem to be able to create a new event only copy existing.
On mobile. Chrome.
Hope all’s going well with your prep!
At present, there’s no way to remove badges from a profile. Beyond your example, there isn’t really much necessity for it. If you want me to remove the badge, you can private message the profile to me, and which badge to remove, and I can go ahead and do it.
We have briefly discussed the idea of custom badges in the past but ultimately have not been able to give it enough attention to even flesh out roughly how it might work from both user experience and technical standpoints. So, unfortunately, I wouldn’t expect it to be available anytime soon. We’re always evaluating our priorities though, so your input here is very much useful and welcome.
On the possibility of us creating Sphero badges for you to award, @Philip-Harney and @Pete-OShea should be able to help on that front. The main thing is to nail down criteria for the various levels.
Also, if you have any resources you may have created for programming Spheros (or even just links to existing resources that worked for you), we’d love to hear about them!
Just one week until our CoderDojo mentor meet up with talks starting from 5:30pm:
There will be guest speakers from the CoderDojo Foundation, CoderDojo Coolest Projects, community members and supporters, including the outputs from our Erasmus+ funded project and the different initiatives that CoderDojo is involved with globally.
That’s amazing news! Let us know more about your event nearer the time we’d love to hear all about it.
We’re hoping to host a wearable dojo for girls between October and December. I’ve been testing FLORA (Adafruit) and NeoPixels. And translating examples from the Adafruit website from English to Dutch. In the second half of September I’ll be making proper cards with which you can make a Christmastree with flashy NeoPixels. As soon as I’ve made these cards (in English and Dutch) I’ll share them globally.
Pics of the Christmastree test can be found on our Twitter account: @CDkennemerwaard
I can’t wait to see the toolkit
Great, we tweeted it out, it would be great if some Dojo is available to simultaneously run a Dojo and have both groups of ninjas chat
@Nuala-Nic-Éil this is the early days. Tried 2 sessions using free account on Zoom. As I never used Zoom before there were a few glitches…
So it all started great. I used a scheduled meeting. I sent the link to the event in the newsletter. Once people registered for tickets I emailed them the meeting number. Just before I started I selected the option of repeat meeting. I was hoping this would work and that I could use the same meeting number.
So I started the video and screen sharing. I used Scratch. Everyone had Scratch offline and the parents had Zoom on the phone. I was not sure they could hear me. I disabled video except for myself. 5 minutes have passed. Still nothing on chat. I see people joining but still no feedback. Untill I turned my sound on… very embarrassing. So we laughed together. Everything went great. The session is a bit short at first as the free one is capped to 40 minutes. But I think it will work great later on as more material is covered.
The second meeting did not go well. I tried using the scheduled meeting. The option was to create a new one. I could not use the previous meeting number.
By the time i decided to use personal meeting number I was some 15-20 minutes delayed. I sent a new email with this meeting number but no one joined. I would have lost patience myself. The participants were parents and kids who have never been in a dojo and never learnt any coding.
I would like to try again. We have lots of people on the mailing list who wish to join but we simply cannot accomodate all. This would be a great opportunity for more people to try coding for free.
Please do give me advice and feedback. I intend to use a personal meeting number from now on.
Mr. Des Burke Secretary of the Rush Multipurpose Youth Facility is very happy to provide space and support a Dojo in the premises.
Would you be interested in starting a Dojo in the Rush area of Dublin, but don’t have a venue yet?
The youth facility are hosting an open day on the 26th of August so if you want to check it out and talk to them on the day about setting up a Dojo, we would love to see young people in the area having the opportunity to be tech creators.
Alternatively you can contact Des via the contact form here.
When you have no outstanding published events for a dojo, the dojo management screen does not present the ‘Manage Events’ button. It only shows the create Event button. The result is that you can’t get back to a new drafted event to publish it, after you navigate away or to your list of past events.
The expected behavior would be to always show the ''Manage Event" button.

Ninjas David & Douglas, from CoderDojo 0 in Cork (the first ever Dojo!) made the tutorial video below that teaches you how to use HTML5 Canvas.
Would you like us to develop similar tutorial videos?
Would it be useful for mentors? or for ninjas?
Do you like this style?
Would you prefer written to video content?
Feel free to share your thoughts and other youtube videos that you have found useful below!
@Zita-Daniel-Nad ok in this case, I’d create an event listing as you are hosting it virtually. This way you can add in the details to join and there is no need to create a new separate Dojo listing as there is no continuous location etc. Does this make sense?
The #EUDojo is taking place on the 17th October in the European Parliament, Brussels to celebrate EU Code Week! Would you like to attend the event in Brussels and showcase a project to show MEP’s a thing or two about coding?
The Expression of interest for travel bursary is now open! Spaces are limited so apply asap!🇪🇺
A quick message : if you encounter some dates in Taiwanese, please change your locale (bottom left dropdown) back and forth from another locale to yours again.
It should only affect users that came before on the website and have a corrupted browser local locale.
Excellent work, thank you
Great thanks for sharing! From all the responses I got there is an over all impression that Scratch is easily accessible for getting started and this is a valuable step for young people as you want them to be confident and engaged to continue with a positive learning experience! It also has the ability to indirectly teach logical thinking
There are some useful video resources here for unreal engine.
Let me know how it goes!
Looks like your connection to CoderDojo Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
