Hello @here, thank you to those who came, and those who were in touch about missing it. Today went smoothly, well attended and staffed by volunteers. We had stability in hardware with 6 laptops with support from Mozilla Hive and Free Geek Toronto, and had a take away HTML5 cheat sheet.
In other news one of our regular learners attended this session as a volunteer. He helped a first time student learn the ropes with Scratch. @jordanne has ideas about creating handouts to describe the important elements of Scratch, and also, has ideas about Scratch and uses it in fun ways to tell stories. Learn about her cat.

Have a really nice day at the @coderdojoto! Thank you to @mozilla Hive and @freegeektoronto for the support in getting 6 quality laptops. @starbucks at King and Dufferin (shoutout to Viv!) for the much needed coffee, and @bitmakerhq for the crucial space, power, and internet. And a most hearty thank you to the students, parents, mentors for showing up to code. Y'all rule.
