This is the story of why gaming--and Minecraft specifically—is important to the future of technology. Do you have a hard time finding engineering talent for your startup? Do you wish you had been introduced sooner to the computer science concepts required to successfully start a technology-centered business? Do you see those concepts as increasingly important to many professional pursuits, not just software engineering? Do you have kids? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might find something of interest in this talk.
The session will conclude with a hands-on workshop for anyone interested in actually playing with Minecraft and ComputerCraft, getting on Minecraft U's servers, or simply having further discussions with the MCU staff. Bring a laptop if you are interested in playing and coding!
