Issue #47: USB

Last week, the Manchester CoderDojo volunteers got together to think about our planned events for 2016, and to also look back at all we did in 2015.

We certainly want to do more projects and challenges that can be developed throughout the year. We’re also keen to build on some of the activities we tried in 2015, including Robocode and SonicPi. In turn, this might mean we have less dedicated time for Minetest, for example.

We’re keen to hear what people think – so look forward to the next CoderDojo on 7th Feb:

  • wave one tickets – Saturday 16th Jan, 5pm (today)
  • wave two tickets – Sunday 24th Jan, 5pm


  • Learn: PiCademy
    The Raspberry Pi Foundation and Google have four free workshops for teachers and educators - apply now!
  • Meet: Hive Manchester
    Hive Manchester brings together people interested in making more things like CoderDojo happen. First community meetup on 20th Jan
  • Make: Manchester Youth Hack
    15 & 16th Feb - half term hack event for teenagers - from the team behind HackManchester Jnr!
  • Do: CodeBug at half term
    Half term workshops with CodeBug in Rochdale and Ramsbottom
