Adventures in Java Programming with Minecraft

This course provides students with the opportunity to create their very own Minecraft Mods using Java programming. Students will be creating custom server side mods using Code Kingdoms, a Java coding framework designed specifically to teach Foundations to code in Minecraft. Students will have the opportunity to follow along with some great tutorials, build mods, deploy them to a server, and test them. Code Kingdoms allows students to interchangeably program with a block interface, or completely in pure Java, so the course can be fun and rewarding for all levels of coding experience!
