MEP Sean Kelly confirmed the event is meant to mark the start of Ireland's EU presidency on January 1, 2013.
CoderDojo was set up in 2011 by James Whelton, a teenage coder, in order to make up for the lack of computer education for children and youngsters in Ireland. His initiative was supported by investor Bill Liao and grew to attract an average of 6,000 children to its sessions around the world on any given Saturday.
Speaking about the movement, Whelton said: "Bill and myself started CoderDojo a year ago, but it’s been the people who volunteered who have made it what it is."
"In one sense we’re very proud that the format and the ethos has worked and that people who volunteered have such a passion for it and it’s been taken and implemented elsewhere and has really scaled up. It’s fantastic to see,” Whelton added.
