  • This book was well done, but sadly was based on CraftBukkit. With the death (or nearly) of CraftBukkit the use of this tool for pedagogical reasons is still reasonable but a lot less fun as all new features must be abandoned with no hope of ever including them in your own extensions. Without a hope of setting up a server that friends will want to play, interest in building anything but the rudiments is gone. So, if you are trying to interest a child in programming - great. If you hope that your [...]


  • This is really just a walkthrough of some very basic items copied out of the Bukkit API. This book is another lazy, "Copy this line. Change this number. Now you're a programmer! Thanks for the money sucker!" kind of thing.Two things you will NOT learn from this. Programming, and modding. It's nowhere near thorough enough to be of any value to new programmers and the author doesn't understand MC nor MC plugins enough to know what he's doing. Playing with an API != learning. Avoid this at all cost [...]


  • Great book. Great way to teach programming using engaging content and best programming practices. Also like the access to the author via the book's home page on pragprog with the discussion forum, so if you get stuck, you can ask questions and not simply get stalled. This is helpful to those new to programming. This may be too basic to those who already know how to program, but is a total gem for those who don't and are learning.
