CoderDojo and Perl Evangelism

Abstract

CoderDojo is an international movement for computer coding education. (http://www.coderdojo.com) They have several curriculum paths, known as Katas, and work has begun to establish and create an option to use Perl as a language for exploration for the kids in CoderDojo programs. The goal is to try and create more awareness of Perl and perhaps offer a great “on ramp” for future educational projects using Perl 6. This activity aims to create an awareness of TIMTOWTDI when it comes to first learning higher-level scripting!
