We are debuting EpicMC Rocks, featuring the EpicMC Modly platform at Create mods, short for modifications, to the Minecraft game. Give yourself superpowers, create structures such as towers and castles, and even create mini-games like Parkour, TNT Run, Simon and more! Programming is done by dragging and connecting blocks together like a puzzle to create the mod. Learn the fundamentals of programming and even concepts like event-driven programming. This site has online material and videos to show you how!

In this meetup, we will walk you through creating a FREE account. Then we will create a colorful structure and have it built by issuing a single command!
