Raspberry Pi Foundation and CoderDojo Foundation to merge

Very interesting news this morning. The Raspberry Pi Foundation and the CoderDojo Foundation are to merge.

CoderDojo is a global network of coding clubs for kids from 7-17 and was established in July 2011 by James Whelton and Bill Liao. There are currently 1,250 CoderDojos in existence and together, the Foundations have set themselves a target of increasing that to 5,000 by 2020. (To me, this seems a bit on the high side, but who knows what these great organisations can achieve?)

Based in Ireland, CoderDojo will remain an independent charity with the Raspberry Pi Foundation being a corporate member of CoderDojo and Philip Colligan serving as a director.

You can read more about the merger (which has to be ratified by Irish regulators) on the Raspberry Pi website.
