What is the Manchester CoderDojo?
Learn how to code, or if you already can, improve your skills. Build cool stuff, from games to websites to animations to apps. Meet people like you who are interested in the same sort of things.
CoderDojo is a worldwide network of young programmers and hackers, with over 100 dojos all over the world, from Cape Town, South Africa to Silicon Valley, California!
What do we do?
- Raspberry Pi
- Lua programming in Minetest (free-software version of Minecraft)
- Many more
From the November 2014 CoderDojo we are experimenting using Minetest -- it is like Minecraft but much better for programming.
Take a look at the intro page: MineTest

How to edit this wiki
An earlier dojo, on 5th May 2013, was the birthday of two people there. It is well known that you only need a group of 23 people to have a 50% chance that 2 people share a birthday. Can you write a program, in whatever language you like, to show this? How many people would you need to have a 99% chance that two people share a birthday?
Long term projects
From 28th July 2014, the Young Rewired State is running a Festival of Code, more info here.
