It has now been 4 years since CoderDojo was started by James Whelton and Bill Liao at the National Software Centre in Co. Cork, Ireland. Since that first Dojo, the movement has grown becoming a truly global movement with over 740 Dojos in 59 countries around the world.
In 4 years, this cool little idea Bill and I had for a place, which impacts different people in different ways, all brought together by the ability to create on computers, has reached many different corners of the earth. Even now, my mind cannot comprehend the good will, effort and determination that has carried CoderDojo to where it is. In these 4 years, CoderDojo has been developed, coloured and characterised by all of us, the community, the lifeblood and the source of impact. Thank you to all those who have lead, supported and participated, we have helped so many develop software and more importantly, develop themselves.
