Throughout this course, you’ll be able to post comments and questions on each step, and we’ll be reading and answering them regularly. Here are some of the people you will hear from!


John is Head of CoderDojo and is responsible for ensuring CoderDojo delivers a great experience for our volunteers and young people, that our activities happen safely, and that the network of Dojos continues to grow. John describes himself as a 'wannabe coder' having taught himself some HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Python. Now, he's studying for a degree in computing with the Open University. Outside of technology, John is actively involved in the Scouts in the UK and has an interest in authentic leadership.
