Programming Experience and Minecraft.

We all know and love Minecraft.  From it’s randomly generated worlds, to sandbox style gameplay, there is so much that you can do.  Now, what if I told you that it could help you become a better programmer.

Yes, I know, mind blown.  But really, modding Minecraft is a great way to become better at programming.  It lets you add things to an already built game, eliminating the need to write boilerplate code (love it already).  Minecraft is written in Java, which has a similar syntax to C/C++.

I have been messing around in the Minecraft source code (from MCP) for a little bit now, and it has taught me and clarified many things.  Know that I started modding the game with very minimal Java knowledge and experience. It definitely takes some getting used to, but is really simple once you get the hang of it.

I highly suggest you give this a try, both for fun and for experience.
