Synopsis
Expand/Collapse Synopsis
A hands-on introduction to coding that teaches you how to program bots to do cool things in the game you love–Minecraft! This book takes the robotic “turtle” method, and extends it to the 3D, interactive world of Minecraft.

Automate the Minecraft Stuff will transform Minecraft from a mere video game into an educational programming tool. Using ComputerCraft, a free Minecraft mod, and the Lua programming language (used by professional game developers), you’ll write programs to make your bots dig mines, chop wood, craft items, and build anything you can imagine. Sit back, relax, and make your turtle army do the work! The book provides the full code needed to write each program and walks you through it line by line, explaining how things work along the way. By book’s end, you’ll have a handle on computer science basics, a taste of how fun and powerful coding can be, and plenty of turtle robots at your command.
