Coding with Minecraft (No Starch Press)
Thursday, 14 June 2018

This book, subtitled "Build Taller, Farm Faster, Mine Deeper, and Automate the Boring Stuff", is an introduction to coding that teaches you how to program bots to in Minecraft. Author Al Sweigart takes the robotic "turtle" method, and extends it to the 3D, interactive world of Minecraft and shows how to create a virtual robot army with Lua. Step-by-step coding projects show how to write programs that automatically dig mines, collect materials, craft items, and build things.
