If you already have minecraft installed, you just need to activate version 1.8.8 as the video demonstrates.
If you don't have minecraft yet, you can purchase it here and download the official launcher. Alternatively, as our servers do not require authentication, you can use our launcher (if you have python installed).
We recommend you create a free account on Cloud9 to use their cloud-based coding environment - watch the video to see how it works. The url the video has you copy and paste is this:
You have 3 options!
A) If you're just looking to try this out, you can use our free demo servers (these are not guaranteed to be up, and are frequently griefed, but are good to try stuff out on)
B) Follow our guide to setup a free local server! (Does not work with C9.io or online multiplayer without something like ngrok)
C) Start with our open source repo to set up a server on a minecraft hosting provider for multiplayer support.
This video demonstrates how the pieces connect together, and walks you through executing code in your minecraft world for the first time!
