Working within the game itself, you'll learn to set up and run your own local Minecraft server, interact with the game on PC, Mac and Raspberry Pi, and develop Python programming skills that apply way beyond Minecraft. You'll learn how to use coordinates, how to change the player’s position, how to create and delete blocks and how to check when a block has been hit.
Build houses, structures, and make a 3D duplicating machine as well as learning how to create intelligent objects and program an alien invasion, and build huge 2D and 3D structures like spheres and pyramids.
Python is one of the top programming languages worldwide, with an install base in the millions. It's a favourite language at Google, YouTube, the BBC, and Spotify, and is the primary programming language for the Raspberry Pi - so why wouldn't you want to learn how to use it!
