DojoCon is the official CoderDojo conference for champion, mentors, and all adults who are involved or interested in getting involved in the CoderDojo movement. DojoCon aims to build on the growth of the CoderDojo community by offering opportunity for mentors to share, discover and learn about encouraging the next generation of coders via CoderDojo! In keeping with Coder Dojo philosophy, the events are free and feature a variety of keynote speakers and seminars led by practitioners from the educational and digital technology sectors.

DojoCon 2012

The first DojoCon took place in the Limerick Institute of Technology. Immediately after there was discussion in the community about doing a second conference to follow on the first's success and continue to build the community, perhaps this time it could be further up the country to make it more accessible to other regions.
