The international CoderDojo movement, founded in 2011 by Irish teen James Whelton, has grown to over 2100 Dojos spread across 111 countries as of January 2019.  West Sound CoderDojo, an initiative of West Sound Technology Association, is a proud member of that movement and launched its first class on May 2, 2015. Each dojo operates independently and autonomously in its local community.
