My first CoderDojo down at Sunnybank Hills.

I find the connection between shopping centres and libraries rather confusing, for former are loud, commercial and horrible places, very different to the latter.

I think the CoderDojo group went well, with some obvious room for improvement. Don’t try to lecture kids, give them a small, simple instruction and get them doing stuff immediately. One slide, one thing to try. If a kid has interest in a subject, don’t try to teach them something else, and that goes for both parents and teachers.

Have been asked to help with a Python course in the next few weeks..

Humbug later that night, some discussion with Russell around the sponsor prospectus.
