He has just joined forces with Code.org to present the Minecraft Hour of Code Designer, a tutorial that teaches young beginners (ages 6 and up) how to create a simple game. The designer uses a drag-and-drop interface to illustrate familiar code concepts, such as programming and object-oriented loops, while letting the imagination run wild Minecraftthe universe of blocks. You can make chickens that pay gold and set rules as logical or silly as you want.

The tutorial is available now in 10 languages, and it will be available in 50 languages ​​by the start of Computer Science Education Week on December 5.
