I wanted to write this article because I’ve seen a scenario play out multiple times when teaching kids to code. This happens pretty often at MV Code Club in some form or other.
This is a technical description of some of the work we’ve done to make it easier to teach Minecraft at MV Code Club
About half of the kids in MV Code Club love Minecraft and come to us wanting to learn to code mods and plugins because of Minecraft. About two years ago…
Please don’t learn to code got me thinking. There are a lot of articles out there that exhort everyone to learn to code, and a few articles suggesting that maybe you shouldn’t learn to code. And yet, there’s a whiff of defensiveness to the “don’t learn to code” crowd.
