Issue #12: 50%

filter(half, data)

We’ve had 12 CoderDojos in 15 months, and now 12 newsletters in the past 15 weeks! So, we thought it might be a good time to look at some data.

At CoderDojo events, we’ve had 1060 places booked in total. Of these, 543 have been for young people.
For the newsletter, we’ve had 3828 successful deliveries. Of these, there were 1922 unique opens.

Put another way:

  • About 50% of the people at Manchester CoderDojo are under 18
  • About 50% of the people on the mailing list read this newsletter!

Does that sound reasonable? How can we improve? Please let us know via the usual channels.

Elsewhere this week, we heard CoderDojo Bolton went really well (there’s another one next week), whilst Prince Andrew visited a Manchester CodeClub!
