  • Enhance your Minecraft building techniques using computer code
  • Get started with the Linux operating system on the Raspberry Pi
  • Make the Minecraft world interact with the real world

In Detail

Minecraft is a hugely successful game, having sold more than 20 million copies worldwide across a range of platforms. The Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive, low-power computer that aims to get people interested in Computer Science. The two have joined forces to bring you Minecraft: Pi Edition, allowing you to explore the world of programming and to see instant results in the Minecraft world.

Instant Minecraft: Pi Edition Coding How-to provides a clear and concise guide to Minecraft: Pi Edition, from setting up a Raspberry Pi and getting Minecraft running, right through to some simple (and not-so-simple!) programming. The programs used in this book can speed up the Minecraft building process and allow interactivity that wouldn't be possible otherwise.

This book will take you through a number of clear recipes showing you how to set up a Raspberry Pi, introduce you to the Python programming language, and show you how to make the Minecraft world communicate with the real world.

On the way, you will get a basic grounding in the Linux operating system and learn some good coding practices. You will create a game-within-a-game in the form of an interactive Reversi board in the Minecraft world. Some simple electronics examples are also included, which show you how easily software and hardware can work together.

When you have finished reading Instant Minecraft: Pi Edition Coding How-to, the sky is the limit for your Minecraft building. Interactive environments will be the norm, and you will discover how programming can help in every part of your Minecraft experience.

Who this book is written for

This book is for everyone! No previous experience of programming, Linux, or Minecraft is required. It is great for you if you enjoy playing Minecraft and would like to be able to build more interesting things, and also if you are interested in learning computer programming. All of the recipes require a Raspberry Pi computer (and all necessary peripherals), and some are best performed with additional electronics components.
