Minecraft Programming Opening Day

Come join us for our first day of coding using Minecraft.  If you've had a little coding experience and like Minecraft, this activity may be for you.  We'll be pushing our limits by trying to code an actual plug-in for our Minecraft server. While some of this might be over our heads (including the librarian's!), the goal here is to work together to do some real coding, even if we ultimately fail or run out of time.
