As ever, we’re looking forward to our event at The Sharp Project tomorrow. All the spaces have long gone – if you can’t make it then please please let us know…
This is our tenth weekly newsletter. Alongside this, some of the Manchester CoderDojo community have been busy writing words: Dave introduces the visual programming language Pure Data; Des has documented how to install a Minecraft server; Matthew posted a guest blog about a new project, Robotiky.
Meanwhile, congratulations to Nour on getting a date, venue and tickets out for the first CoderDojo Bolton!
If you want to share something of interest, whether it’s a link for the newsletter or a post on the blog then just let us know. Content is our code, or something like that !
