Welcome to CoderDojo and welcome to Computer Programming!
If this is your very first time here we’re going to start with Minecraft Hour of Code, click on the link below to get started. You will need to create an account with a username and password. Pick something that you will remember when you come back next week.
1. MineCraft Hour Of Code
Firstly you will need to create an account on Code.org. Important: Write down your username and password so that you will be able to log in next week!
Once you have created an account and signed in to Code.org you can go ahead and do the Minecraft Hour of Code.
After you’ve completed the Minecraft Hour of Code continue working your way through the exercises in the Express Course. This will take you most of the rest of the term to finish.
Click the Sign In button in the top right corner and sign in with the email and password that you used to create your account last week. Then you should see a message on a purple background with an orange Continue button – click the Continue button.
