The book is for anyone who wants to learn how to modify Minecraft.
Aimed at kids who already play Minecraft, this guide will teach coding through a series of «Recipes» (the term used in-game when crafting new objects). For example, in the game, one of the first things any player must do is create a Workbench, or Crafting Table, which will in turn enable the player to create sophisticated tools. Recipe 1 in the book (the term Recipe and Chapter is interchangeable) is ‘A modding Workbench’ and its ingredients are the tools the reader will need to begin modding.
Walter Higgins has more than 20 years’ experience in software development working at Microsoft, Apple, EMC, and IBM. When not programming, he enjoys tinkering with new technology, reading, and running. He lives in Cork, Ireland.
