Thanks for helping with Snap!Con 2020!

Open in a new tab

DiamondFire teaches coding concepts through a Minecraft multiplayer server. Using a drag-and-drop style coding system, students can create their own games directly within Minecraft. Students can collaborate and build games in real time, and they can also play each other's games together. DiamondFire achieves learning objectives using a unique, social environment and a game everyone loves!

In this workshop, we will: - walk you through the process of creating games on DiamondFire - show how programming constructs such as events, conditions, and parameters are represented within Minecraft - give you an overview of the educational modules within DiamondFire

If you have Minecraft: Java Edition, you can actively participate in building games in this workshop. If not, you can view the screenshare.
