The annual geekfest for young coders reached its conclusion yesterday, with a show and tell session in Victoria. It gets bigger and more complex each year. This year saw 14 centres working on a huge range of projects for a week – then meeting to showcase what they did.

I have attended every previous event, but a combination of circumstances conspired to make me miss yesterdays session, so I have to make to with trawling through tons of tweets (check the hashtag #yrs2011), looking at Paul Clarke’s excellent photos, and reading the blog posts of others who did manage to make it. The best source which brings together all the tweets, videos of the show and tell, and links to all the centres is YRS’s own website: youngrewiredstate.org 

Looking forward to the event in 2012 already – no, not THAT summer 2012 event….. YRS2012. Although there may be some competition for column inches in August 2012, wonder if there will ever be a day when young coders get their own dedicated transport lanes and venues created specially for them!)
