Kiddo’s been wanting to learn programming, with the ultimate goal of modding Minecraft. We’ve done some Ruby, but he’s impatient, so last night I we started Java with a simple program that repeats a println X times.
He wanted to pass it the integer limit.
After a few minutes, I suggested we watch a movie & check back later.
After dinner, he decided to stop it & we timed some shorter runs.
I think he has a better understanding of scale now!
@DialMforMara The first time I played mobile Minecraft, I ended up stuck in a tree all night, trying not to move so the skeletons wouldn’t shoot me down. Every time I ventured down to try to finish my shelter, I got killed and re spawned in that tree, so I finally just set the phone down and waited for daylight.

Once all those are taken care of, you can start exploring and building.
