Minecraft modding is a great way to get a better grasp of how programming works. For folks just starting to learn how to make mods, open-source mods are one of the best tools to learn. By having some solid examples they can mess around with, new learners can figure out what specific parts of the Minecraft and Forge codebase do. This is an event to promote FOSS mods and give new creators a kick to start their own mod development!
The jam will have three themes chosen randomly from the Minecraft Gamepedia. They're more to kickstart some inspiration than actual requirements, but it is recommended you go along with one or multiple of the themes.
The themes are:
1. Nether Brick (item)
2. Iron Golem
3. Wither Skeleton
You can ask for help and join in the fun either in the jam's forums or in #fossjam on EsperNet. The jam goes from midnight on 2/22 to 11:59 PM on 3/8. Enjoy!
