Adventures in Minecraft, 2nd Edition is your ticket to discovery in the world of Minecraft! Written specifically for 11-15 year-olds who want to learn how to code, this book teaches you what you need to know to get started. Beginning with the simplest, most basic tasks involved with setting up Minecraft, each of the nine projects will build skill upon skill until you're planning and writing your own interactive games! It doesn't feel like learning when you're having so much fun, but you'll be developing skills that will be with you for life. No experience? No problem! These projects are designed to teach you the basics before moving into more complicated tasks. It's about more than just playing Minecraft; it's about understanding the basic concepts that apply to any programming project. You'll learn some Python programming, but more importantly, you'll understand how programming works, and you'll learn how to think like a programmer as you build, develop, create, and explore the world of Minecraft.
These projects can be completed on a Mac, PC, or Raspberry Pi, and you don't need any kind of special knowledge or experience to get started. So what are you waiting for?
