Meet the new Dojos

The new team of Ans

CoderDojo Ans

Province: Province de Liège
Location: Bibliothèque Arsène Soreil
Lead Coach : Valérie Gillon (temporarily)

Since January, CoderDojo is buzzing in Wallonia. Under the impulse of Muriel De Lathouwer, CEO of EVS, CoderDojo is spreading fast in the south of the country. Valérie, the community lead for Wallonia, founded her own Dojo in Ans. It is the ideal location for new coaches (and possible new leads) to pick up the taste of coaching.

CoderDojo Gosselies-Aéropôle

Province: Hainaut
Location: Monkey Bridge coworking
Lead coach: Omer Kara

In Gosselies, next to the runway of Charleroi Airport (I mean Brussels South), Omer started a new Dojo. Omer has been an active coach in Mons for quite some time now. He decided he wanted even more fun and thus opened up a Dojo closer to home. 
His Dojo is already in full flight!

First CoderDojo session in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw

CoderDojo Sint-Pieters-Leeuw

Province: Vlaams-Brabant
Location: Bibliotheek Sint-Pieters-Leeuw
Lead coach: Eddy Vanbever

Eddy and his wife Yvonne discovered CoderDojo through their son Bryan who is a big fan and a diligent participant. They went from involved parents to coaches in Halle. And now, with some help from their friends in Halle, they started their own Dojo in their hometown Sint-Pieters-Leeuw.
Best of luck Leeuwenaren!

Did we forget anyone? Did you start a Dojo since april 2018? Let us know and we will mention you in the next newsletter.


  1. Great to see that former coaches and participants take it upon themselves to found a totally new CoderDojo!
