Seattle CoderDojo News – Jan 30


February 11 tickets are now available. This is the last week of “Sprint 1” and will be the last week of the Linux workshop. Those students who want to continue with Linux will be able to get guidance and help with self-paced online tutorials in the Hacker Room starting on February 25.

Tickets for this Saturday are still available. We’ll be combining the Hacker and Beginner rooms into one this week to free up a room for a special program called “Programmer Bedtime Stories” which is a live reading of original fairy tales that illustrate technical concepts. Each fairy tale has original illustrations and most have a working code sample to walk the kids through. The programming concepts are intermediate level, but the stories should be enjoyable for kids of all experience levels.

Get tickets for this Saturday!


We are off for the holiday weekend on the 18th, but will return on February 25th.

International Tabletop Day is April 29

What would you think of a special program where, instead of coding, the kids thought about game design, made a tabletop game, and let the other kids try it and give them feedback? This would run 4 hours instead of 2 and be limited to one room of gamemakers, though kids from other rooms could stay later to be game testers.

If you’d be interested, reply to this email and let us know. If there’s enough interest, we’ll ask Amazon for the extra time.
