We ushered in the New Year, but kept our commitment to the long-standing CoderDojo kids event this past weekend. Hosted in our Vila do Conde, Portugal headquarters on Saturday January 6th, the event focused on front-end development skill-building. The CoderDojo event was the 30th of these free events aiming to teach kids and teens how to program.

The BindTuning team, including CEO Beatriz Oliveira, has demonstrated a steady commitment to the events held on the first Saturday of each month.

The CoderDojo events are hands-down one of the most rewarding things we do

Featured on Microsoft’s website back in 2016, the BindTuning events continue to attract young coders who have a passion for technology. A woman-owned, family-friendly business, BindTuning is particularly interested in broader opportunities for young children and teens, especially girls, to gain exposure to technology.

Over 30 kids, age 7 to 17, participated in this 30th BindTuning hosted event. Both HTML and CSS skills were applied as the children focused on learning front-end development skills by creating exciting travel-themed pages. Each child selected a favorite destination and created a page to talk about it, adding pictures and styling the page according to the destination style.

CoderDojo is fun!
