The next generation of coders gets down to hacking MineCraft in NetBeans at EPIK fun day

58 sec read

 

A large, enthusiastic group of kids got down to hacking MineCraft on NetBeans at EPIK’s free MineCraft coding event on saturday afternoon in San Francisco. It was a great day and the kids rapidly took over, helping each other and adding exploding arrows and diamonds to MineCraft. We also produced a Mac version of the software for future events. It was also really great to see parents and children alike discovering the fun and sharing quality time together.

Hopefully this will be just the first of many such events in San Francisco. Todays MineCraft hackers are the software developers of tomorrow….

More details on EPIK and the tutorials can be found on the EPIK blog.
