Annual Report 2015

See the report

We are delighted to present the CoderDojo Annual Report for 2015. In 2015 we undertook many large projects such as the redevelopment of Zen, the re-imagination and expansion of CoderDojo Sushi series and the CoderDojo Child Protection Project for Ireland. In the Annual Report we are happy to report on a successful first year into our CoderDojo strategy which covers 2015 and 2016.

Thank you to all of our volunteers, supporters and Ninjas who help us achieve all of this success. We can’t wait to achieve and deliver more success alongside you in future years!
