Customer Reviews

"I have taken every online Minecraft Modding course and CodaKid is by far the best. Their online teacher support is awesome and I really learned how to code with Java."

- Andrew B., Age 13, 8/15/16


"CodaKid courses are perfect for homeschooling. They spend time to explain key coding concepts and the projects are fun and entertaining. I like that my son is using real programming tools and learning real Java coding whereas before he was just using drag and drop tools. I believe that CodaKid provides real educational value and skills for the future."

    LOVE IT!

    I am the same person the wrote the 1 star review titled "No Joy" and I am writing to revise that opinion. There was an issue with my son's computer graphics software...unsupported or something...so it wouldn't run the version of Minecraft necessary for CodaKid. He plays Minecraft on that computer without a problem...but whatever. So we put Eclipse on my computer and now it works great. The instructor is fantastic...the quality of the lessons, the pace...all of it...really cool. My son had a little difficulty and the support staff was awesome. They did a screen share and totally solved our problem...which turned out to be unrelated to coding. I could rave on...but trust me...my 8 year old is loving this program...LOVING!

    Amazing!! Love it!!!! And you DON'T have to already have Minecraft to use it!

    This is essentially a create-your-own-Minecraft world. My son (who's 10) was already learning Java after using it for 1 hour and had already created his own sword (which is not in the regular minecraft game) and created his own world that quickly--the best thing is you can use it right away. Two weeks later, he's done so much more and we'll definitely be purchasing the Minecraft Modding 2. It teaches real coding, and it's just like the actual game. We are just amazed by it!

    My child LOVES minecraft and this product was a great addition to our summer schooling. He learned how to code, made something that was useful, and had a blast doing it. I don't think I could ask for anything more.
