Palos Verdes Library Presents Coderdojo
The Palos Verdes Library District will present CoderDojo to its members starting on August 30, 2014, at the Peninsula Center Library. They will be meeting on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., in the computer training room on the 2nd floor. CoderDojo is a volunteer-led, open source and nonprofit global movement that teaches children how to code, make games, develop web sites and create mobile applications. Currently, 432 dojos operate in 45 different countries. This is a fun and interactive social environment where people can share their programs, collaborate and learn together. CoderDojo materials are targeted at young people between the ages of 10 – 17. The first class is open to 10 children, and parents can attend during the duration of the class. There are 8 computers available and participants will also be allowed to bring in their own computers.
To participate in the class you will need the free BlueJ software installed on your laptops before the class begins. Please visit www.bluej.org/ for more details. These classes are free and open to the public. For more information contact Jennifer Chaffey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (310) 377-9584 x456.
Also Flipster is now available for ipad and ipad minis users through the library. This is a great way to read assorted magazine titles on your ipad. To find out how to set up your ipad, go to www.pvld.org and click on Flipster. A step by step information tab will help you.
