Starting next week, Aug 2, a few of us will be meeting up to begin relearning Java. We welcome others to join us from 8-9pm.

Future meetups will also cover programming in JavaScript, Python and C++. While Java is the code base for the legacy Minecraft client and server, the platform for xbox, tablets, Windows 10, and… (Read More)
