Computer programs and computers have become intertwined with our daily lives, both at home and at work, assisting us and sometimes even making decisions for us altogether. CoderDojoTo and Bitmaker Labs both strongly support and promote computer literacy, which makes the partnership an ideal fit.
Financeit has also joined CoderDojoTO and Bitmaker Labs as the title sponsor, providing resources to students and covering costs to operate the volunteer-run program. All CoderDojoTo events will now be held at Bitmaker Labs. The next CoderDojoTo session (HTML/CSS: Website 101) will be taking place at 10:00AM on Sunday, February 23rd, at 20 Duncan Street on the 2nd floor. Bitmaker Labs will be moving to 220 King Street West in March, so the CoderDojoTo event in March will be held at the new headquarters.
The CoderDojo program is free to participate in. High school students who want to find out more about learning to write code are strongly encouraged to apply.

This past Sunday the first CoderDojo event in Toronto was a total success! Our workshop leader Adnan taught our group Ruby! Perhaps it’s ambitious to proclaim that just over 2 hours of action packed and exhilarating string manipulation can imbue the entire language, however, it is safe to say that the spark was there for the students as they learned the basics and wrote programs to dazzle their parents and taunt their siblings.
We are fortunate to have the space for this session graciously donated by Ladies Learning Code, check out their upcoming National “Learn to Code” Day. We are also most grateful to the CoderDojo foundation who has empowered us, like many others, to offer this day to future coders.
We even had our first testimonial from Anna, age 17:
Thank you so much! I enjoyed learning about computer programming! It was very fun learning step by step. I was also able to learn many new things as well. Im glad i was able to make it. Thanks again for the information about today and for letting me use your laptop!
