Did you know that Minecraft was created by the video game programmer Markus Persson, and was released on November 18, 2011? As of 2014, more than 100 million player accounts have been created! Within the game, players can use the cubes to build structures or items, explore and go on quests, or collect resources to build tools and shelters to help users defeat monsters or other players.
Some versions of Minecraft allow players to use computer programming code to create new items or control the characters.
We hope that you enjoy your Hour of Code! Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
