Two of our Coder Dojo Ninjas, Shane and Samuel, attended the third annual #EUDojo event in the EU Parliament in Brussels last month. Young coders from all over Europe were welcomed to Brussels to showcase their coding and technology skills and to teach some MEPs how to write a few lines of code. It was a great trip and an amazing opportunity for members of the Clubhouse to represent Ireland at a European event.
The event, celebrating Europe Code Week, consisted of a two hour session, where 35 young coders taught the MEPs how to create a basic HTML & CSS website. MEPs in attendance included Catherine Stihler (UK), Marian Harkin (Ireland), Mairead McGuinness (Ireland), Brian Hayes (Ireland), Vicky Ford (UK), Kaja Kallas (Estonia), Bogdan Wenta (Poland), Brando Benifei (Italy), Marian Marinescu (Romania), Eva Paunova (Bulgaria), Julia Reda (Germany) and Diane Dodds (UK).
