CoderDojo and Librize: Sunday in OSSCafe

Sunday in Open Source Cafe Shimokitazawa is a little different from when I come here for coworking.


Two of WordCamp Tokyo volunteers who are students (jr. high and high school) gave a mini presentation. Daisuke talked about their involvement in WordPress community, and Tomoyuki showed some WordPress sites he and his friend worked on. Not only younger kids but many of the adults looked pretty impressed by their activity.

I taught HTML and CSS to another 7th grader, and several other mentors gave hands-on Scratch lessons.

2 weeks ago I visited Kushimoto to help a friend start a CoderDojo there (I wrote a Japanese blog post about it), on the way back from WordCamp Osaka. One of the volunteers who participated the Kushimoto event will be launching a dojo in Nishinomiya next month too!Read MoreCoderDojo and Librize: Sunday in OSSCafe

CoderDojo Tokyo at Shimokitazawa Open Source Cafe

I had fun hanging out at the OSS Cafe and tutoring a girl about CSS Box Model and pseudo classes today.

OSS Cafe, my favorite coworking space in Tokyo, has been holding this CorderDojo event on Sunday afternoon to teach kids programming in HTML/CSS, Scratch, JavaScript and more.

Box Model and Panda.

The organizers of CoderDojo Tokyo (in Shimokitazawa) chapter has been doing a really great job, regularly holding the dojo every weeek and attracting new kids and mentors. Better yet, their activity is also getting some people in other areas of Japan interested in opening their own CoderDojo.Read MoreCoderDojo Tokyo at Shimokitazawa Open Source Cafe
