Minecraft Programming

A talk not to be missed – the later morning slot will be with Dave Roxburgh, who will present something that everyone can understand. ┬áThen you can have a 15 minute bash at trying out the Minecraft skills you have just learned on one of the Raspberry Pi’s that we will have working on the day after his well presented talk (with questions at the end).

Whether you’re new to Minecraft, ready to take your game-play to the next level, wanting to get into computer game development or just looking for something fun to learn Python with, Minecraft fits the bill perfectly. The Raspberry Pi comes with Minecraft pre-installed but did you know how easy it is to write your own extensions? This session will show how easy it is to do things like automating the construction of massive buildings and structures such as towers and bridges, make a huge bomb, write your own in-world games… once you know how to hook into the game engine there’s no limit to the things you can do.

For the novice and the Pi programmer, something for everyone.

Newly appointed dad, loving what the Raspberry Pi can do, inspired to learn Python by what I see people doing with Raspberry Pi's all over the world. Set young people a task and by trying to achieve it, they learn how to solve it and how they adapted and evolved their thinking to get it finished (or something else that's cooler!)
