How To Code in Minecraft

You can plan, create and publish an app in a couple of hours using nothing more than a web browser. There is very little that can limit our technological creativity, bar these coding skills that everyone is going on about.

This guide includes everything you need to know to start coding in Minecraft, and I promise you a gripping adventure!

Learning these skills through Minecraft makes it fun and easy to understand. The projects in this book build upon one another, helping you strengthen concepts from exercise to exercise. You will learn how to run your own server, link Minecraft to Scratch and Python to create 3D shapes and mini-games, then install a mod pack to program computers using Lua! Three different programming languages, one game – so many possibilities!
