Hot Resources

These 🔥Hot Resources🔥 can give you some ideas or themes to try out at your Dojo.

Suggestions for March/April:

  • Build a quiz app to test your friends’ knowledge of dogs (or cats, football, music or whatever you’re interested in) in this new tutorial from CoderDojo.
  • If you like drawing and creating designs, have a go at this tutorial.  It helps you get started with Processing, a language that lets you create art with code.
  • Learn how to code an online “guess the number” game using the language PHP.
  • Or why not try some of the March competitions and challenges listed at the bottom of the page?
