In this volume, young readers will learn what it takes to be a Minecraft™ programmer. First introduced in 2009, Minecraft™ has become an enormous success with gaming kids and adults. Users love exploring and building within Minecraft's amazing environments. One of its greatest strengths is its ability to teach coding principles with "redstone" blocks. These blocks are used to make exciting machines and devices in Minecraft's virtual world. Color photographs, diagrams, sidebars, and a graphic organizer help reinforce basic coding concepts.
