CoderDojo Coolest Projects competition to crash Helix
3 June 2014 | 0
Some 300 young coders will battle it out next weekend for the title of CoderDojo Coolest Project on Saturday 7 June at the Helix in Dublin.
Young coders from Dojos across Ireland and Europe will put their apps, websites, games and online businesses through their paces in front of an expert panel of judges.
This year’s entries include an alarm system to send intruder alerts via the Internet; a calculator for those with bladder problems that works out when you have will have to go to the toilet based on the amount and type of fluid you drink; an app to monitor water usage; and a livestock management database.
The event will also play host to talks from technology industry leaders and public workshops on how to build your own app.
The CoderDojo Coolest Projects awards are organised in conjunction with the Hello World Foundation and supported by Intel and UPC.
CoderDojo is a volunteer movement which runs free coding clubs for young people from 5- to 17-years-of-age. There are over 350 dojos active or in the planning stages in 38 countries, reaching 12,000 children monthly.
