Sorry this is a day late. Much has been happening. Much of last week was a haze of pain killers and muscle relaxants punctuated by a bit of enforced clarity so I could sit at a desk long enough to send out the notice that the Eastside Edition of Seattle CoderDojo is closed for the forseeable future.
The important takeaway there is that the only thing going away is a Dojo run by the same people who run Seattle CoderDojo. Another homegrown Dojo could easily step up and take our place. And early conversations with some would-be Dojo organizers are looking promising.
I will connect you with them (and them with some of you) as their plans begin to solidify.
There IS a Dojo this Saturday
We’ll be having it at Amazon Van Vorst as usual. Get tickets at EventBrite.
And next Saturday
Get your tickets for November 8
And hangouts on Wednesday and Thursday nights
Check out the hangout schedule, and if you need the link to our open hangout… http://j.mp/dojocall
And if you really need an Eastside fix
Marek Brejl’s Coding with Kids is a for-profit option, but they’ve been longtime supporters of our efforts and Marek’s a good guy. And they have options besides Saturday mornings.
If I owe you a response to an email
I have not been answering a whole lot of emails since Wednesday. Between nursing lower back spasms and just taking a day of rest for my birthday, there are a LOT of people waiting for replies from me. Well, I’m feeling a little bit better and every second of another year older, and I will try to get everyone replied to by the end of the week.
