The official (and best) place to find out about individual CoderDojos is the list at https://zen.coderdojo.com/dojo which has a complete page for each dojo in Ireland.  The information there is likely to be more complete and more up to date than on this page.  In particular, it is likely to list more CoderDojos in Dublin than are shown here.

Dojos are staffed by volunteers and are free.  To get a ticket for a dojo, follow the link to booking details.  There you will find out about the next session and ticket availability.

General Information

Dojos are for children between 8 and 18 year olds, with most being between 10 and 15.   You can find out what is on offer each week from the booking details and look at the descriptions of what has been on offer in past weeks..  Some dojos give priority tickets to parents who mentor in the dojo or whose children do.

Tickets will show as ‘no tickets available’ before any have been issued and ‘sold out’ after all have gone.

To ask questions, to keep up to date on what is going on in these dojos, special events, advance warning of changes to dates and so on, subscribe to the e-mail in the CodrDojo-Dublin Google Group
