On behalf of CoderDojo Kilkenny, we are excited
to meet and share experiences with our fellow
club members, parents, educators, partners,
leaders and tech enthusiasts to promote tech
learning for all ages. We have put together a
diverse and inspiring mix of speakers, workshops,
and partners to spread the boundaries of our tech
knowledge. Making tech available and interesting
to girls has been a priority to us, and as such
we have a strong mix of female speakers and
presenters. It has also been a priority to display
how technology is open to all children and adults,
and as such we have speakers and workshops
focussing on accessibility in tech.
Throughout the day, there are 49 workshops,
covering 32 different areas, in the 6 conference
pillars of – Design it; Create it; Code it; Make it;
Discuss it; Share it.
DojoCon 2018 compliments the 2,000 Coderdojo
clubs in showing the positive side of technology
and kids, exploring technology in an informal,
creative, and social environment. This is
particularly apt now with computer science on
the curriculum in many countries including Ireland
adding it as a Leaving Certificate subject for the
first time in 2018.
We would like to thank our partners and sponsors,
for their commitment and engagement, and
without whom this conference could not take
Enjoy the conference.
