Do you have recommendations for resources beyond those listed on Kata?
I also wasn't sure if this offer was still available, as the links are out of date: https://coderdojo.com/news/2014/03/19/free-upgrade-to-premium-accounts-with-codeanywhere/
I'd appreciate any specific or general advice on tools and resources Ninjas may find useful and get free or discounted access to.
Background: I'm Champion at new CoderDojo in Geraldton. I don't have coding experience myself. Was hoping to learn more skills during the sessions, but just now am too busy coordinating 50 Ninjas!
What kind of resources are you looking for: Tools, technical tutorials (what languages?), help setting up your Dojo, etc? I can certainly help you hunt something down, but there's a lot out there.
On the subject of the Code Anywhere accounts, that should all still be working for you. Let me know if you hit any issues.
Also, check out my plans to improve the whole area of content over here. If there's anything in particular you'd like to suggest, I'd love to hear it.

@Philip-Harney Thanks for your reply. I was specifically interested in software, tools that Ninjas may use that are commercial but at a discount. I'm going to share what's already listed (e.g. Codeanywhere) with our Ninjas and see if they have any other requests. Thanks.
Hi Phil, the links to code anywhere site need to be updated to codeanywhere.com rather than the old .net
@Geraldton-Champion we've a few other resources either available now or in the pipeline, for various parts of the world. I know not all of this applies to you, but I'm putting it here for anyone else reading the thread.
Digiweb offer free domain names and hosting to Irish & UK dojos.
Lightbot offers this special CoderDojo version.
There's the Codeanywhere offer you already noted.
DreamSpark, from Microsoft is currently under discussion, but not yet available.
Also, if you're interested in hardware, look into this offering of free Raspberry Pis.
Looks like your connection to CoderDojo Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
