Hacking Minecraft?

Hacking Minecraft?

Leicester Hackspace was in attendance at the second Leicester Minecraft event at Phoenix today. The event sold out quite a few weeks ago (in fact in just two days!) and together with Interact Labs were showing people how to 3D print Minecraft models and program Minecraft on the Raspberry Pi. There was a huge amount of interest and there is clearly the demand for more events of this type in Leicester.

Is this something we should do more of in the Hackspace itself? Would a Minecraft night be a good thing to run regularly? Are there people out there who would like to help run it? Let us know if you are interested by posting your thoughts in this thread on the Google Group.

Two Month Update

Leicester Hackspace has been open for just over two months now and we are very pleased with the progress made. The space is now home to a wide range of equipment and tools and the membership is growing steadily.

In addition to the weekly Open Hack Night on Tuesdays we now have a Thursday Arduino night for members and are regularly attending other events - such as the Leicester SciFi Festival, pictured. We also have a workshop programme that includes a forthcoming "Starting in Linux" session, another Arduino session (at Phoenix) and a 3D printing session. Check the diary for details.

Please get in touch if you are interested in joining and we look forward to seeing you at future events.
