I'm reaching out the members of this group to let you know about a new group called CoderDojo Ponce Springs -- it is a free and open group that will focus on helping young people ages 7 - 17 learn to program! VersionOne is financially sponsoring the group. We're seeking potential mentors and volunteers from other companies as well as looking to get the word out to parents who want to bring their kids to learn.
We invite you to be a part of this! Sign up at http://www.meetup.com/CoderDojoPonceSprings/
For a super quick intro on what a CoderDojo is, see these vids:
CoderDojo Movement (2:57)
CoderDojo Mentor Ad (1:29)
Full details at: http://www.coderdojo.com. CoderDojo is an international movement that started in Ireland and has spread around the world rapidly.
Help us set direction at our first event on Tuesday, June 11th @ 7PM:
Held at VersionOne's office in Atlanta, this is a chance for parents and other potential mentors and volunteers to help us set the direction for future events, including helping us set safety policies for future events that involve parents with kids and mentors writing code.
Hope to see you there,
Josh Gough on behalf of CoderDojo Ponce Springs
