We will be using the CodeClub Python introduction to draw things with Turtles. If you have not done very much Python programming, or none at all, then this is for you. More advanced users may be interested in using Python with Minecraft.


This session we will be programming Minecraft using the python program language. By the end of the session you should have your own server up and running on your laptop, be able to take it home and write a computer programs to automatically build things for you at the click of a button.

Get started here: Minecraft Python 1: First Program.
