I just ran my first CoderDojo on the Sunshine Coast[^] today.

30 kids, a handful of mentors, and a couple of hours of programming fun!

it was surprising, to me, that the majority of the kids had no programming experience whatsoever - these were kids from about 7 through to 14 or so.

we used Scratch mainly - it's a great way of getting them doing something quickly.

A couple of the older kids looked at html and javascript and one played with Python.

considering these kids had to come in on a saturday (it's nothing to do with the school, this is entirely independent) it's amazingly popular - sold out in hours and we're arranging another three events (each is 6 weekly two=hour session) which are essentially already fully booked.

I'm feeling inspired!
