Minecraft Forge Modding Workshop - Morning Session

This is a repeat of the workshops conducted earlier at:

Minecraft is a multi-player game about building and placing blocks in a three-dimensional environment. The game was originally built in Java but has been ported to Android, iOS, and XBox 360. The game allows modifications (known as “mods”) that can change the game from what it was originally written. These mods can add content to the game to alter gameplay. For example, new blocks, mobs, and abilities of player can be added.

Have you always wondered what it takes to write these mods ? This workshop is for you!

In this workshop we'll teach the kids on how to build Minecraft mods. Parents can observe from back of the room and are required to stay through out the duration of workshop.

Requirements

• Each attendee must have a laptop (Windows or Mac only).

• At least 1GB of free disk space. If the laptop only has that much space, highly recommend freeing up some space for a better performance.

• 4GB of RAM would work, but 8GB is recommended. Higher memory will work, of course!

Software Installation: Please download and install the software listed here.

Logistics

• Please make sure to bring a water bottle/snacks for the attendees.

• One registration will allow only one kid to participate. Parents are required to stay at the facility for the entire duration of the workspace and may observe from back of the room. There is wifi at the venue and so you may consider bringing your favorite device(s) to stay connected. 

• Your meetup fees will cover the cost of a limited edition Devoxx4Kids t-shirt for the attendee.

    Also, I hope Linux can be supported. We use Ubuntu at home. But, he does have Wind-Owwz! in a VM if really needed...

    Thank you so much for Arun, Tamao and Kevin for hosting a such wonderful event. My son is still talking about that he learned how to create big TNT , diamonds and etc and asked me when will be next workshop.
    Arun is a great speaker for kids. There were more then 50 kids. This was not an easy job, but His dynamic style engaged every kid.
    Thank you for Pivotal lab to share the fabulous space, and the snack bar was a huge hit. :-)

    Do I need to sign up both my son and myself? If so, how do I do that without creating a Meetup account for my son?

    May 26

      Just one sign up for the attendee is enough.

      This is a different workshop than Bukkit.

    I echo AL's comment. My daughter is a whiz at MC, but no previous coding experience.

    Thoughts!

    May 16

    • Arun G.

      No coding experience required, should be able to copy/paste

      May 16

  • Al S.

    What are the recommended ages for this? How much coding experience is required, if any?

    May 16

    • Arun G.

      No coding experience required, they should know how to copy/paste.
