Hewlett Packard Enterprise & CoderDojo

HPE is committed to deliver 10 CoderDojos events and 2,000 training hours in Italy in 2017, engaging 500 kids.

This initiative has been successfully running in Italy since 2014, with two CoderDojo centers opened in Milan and Rome to promote coding for kids between 7 and 17 years. The Dojos will provide monthly free trainings events on basic and advanced coding, plus sensors and making with Arduino and RaspberryPI platforms.
