For Immediate Release: CoderDojoTo teams up with Bitmaker Labs and Financeit

By | blog

CoderDojoTo has teamed up with Bitmaker Labs to help youth ages 10-17 learn how to code. As a title venue sponsor, Bitmaker Labs will be providing meeting space for CoderDojoTo events.

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.

To get free tickets for the CoderDojoTo HTML/CSS: Website 101 session, register at: http://coderdojotofeb23.eventbrite.ca.
