We reported on Microsoft's Minecraft Hour of Code Designer tutorial that will help beginning programmers learn how to code by making a Minecraft mini-game. The initiative is part of Code.org's Hour of Code program that kicked off today.
Now, Microsoft let everyone know that the Minecraft Hour of Code Designer is live. It can be accessed at Code.org, and provides a tutorial that runs students through the process of creating a game in Minecraft.
Head over there now and check it out. Let us know in the comments what you think of this effort to help beginning programmers learn how to code.
