We are teaming up with Coder Dojo to run a family-friendly coding session at Inspirefest Fringe on Saturday morning. The event is FREE but you need to register to attend.
There will be a pick'n'mix of Python Turtle, Scratch and HTML coding fun to choose from.
Big thanks to the volunteers who are helping on the day, I will update the mentor list as I get information, and big thanks to Pete and Niambh for co-organising this event.

What is Coder Dojo? We hacked together a cool hangout that puts the real power of the internet and technology in the hands of the Irish youth. The true power of the net comes from coding, designing and having fun. CoderDojo is a place where you can learn from others and share what you are doing! Each week we have a hands on session with technologies like HTML5, App Development, PHP or Python.
At CoderDojoDCU we provide a class where girls will definitely not be outnumbered, the content is more fun for girls and the mentors are also majority female (you’ll find the odd one with a deeper voice and a dodgy wig ;) )
Since going online in 2001, Siliconrepublic.com has gone from being Ireland’s No 1 resource for technology news, with countless awards to its name, to one of the leading online publications in Europe with over half-a-million pageviews each month and growing. We have become the ‘go to’ destination for those seeking to be informed on all things tech and innovation in Ireland, Europe and further afield.
Inspirefest 2016 is a two day international event that connects professionals interested in the future of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with new perspectives on innovation, leadership and success. Plus unique networking at our exciting Fringe Festival taking place from 30 June - 2 July, 2016. Details: http://inspirefest.com/

Coder Dojo, Coding Grace and Silicon Republic ||
Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
