Frequently Asked Questions


How old do you need to be to attend a CoderDojo?

Generally, our sessions are open from 7 to 17 year olds. However, each club and workshop might be aimed at a specific age group (for example, in Glasgow most of our workshops are aimed at 12 to 17 year olds). Check on the event page for the workshop you are interested in.

What is the cost to take part in a workshop?

There is no charge. CoderDojo sessions are free for young people.

Do you offer courses for adults?

At the moment, no.

Do I have to bring a laptop?

You’ll need a laptop/netbook or have a friend who is willing to share – (pair programming woo!) Make sure your laptop is fully charged (or bring a cable!). At CoderDojo Scotland we are open minded, so we don’t mind if it’s a Windows, Mac or Linux machine.
