Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 10-11 in the UK. The concept, currently being trialled in 25 schools, is being spread through the country with “The Interview”, an online video in which three children grill a who’s who of online coding. Niklas Zennstrom, founder of Skype, Joanna Shields, VP & Managing Director of EMEA Facebook, Chad Hurley, Youtube founder and co-founder/CEO of AVOS Systems, Dame Tessa Jowell, Shadow Minister for the Olympics, Brent Hoberman and Martha Lane Fox, founders of LastMinutes.com, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, world wide web inventor and director/professor at WC3/MIT. HRH Prince Edward The Duke of York lends his royal weight to the cause.
