About George Boyce

I am working to build new educational experiences on top of the Minecraft platform. My first task of the year is to create a development environment which I can share with others to help kids (and adults!) learn to code in a safe and friendly environment. Our first goal is to build a Minecraft server to support a 24-hour charity gaming marathon on November 7, 2020. All funds that my gaming team and I raise this year through Extra Life, and all funds contributed by my Patreon supporters, will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. I hope you will join us.

A short bit of history about me...

I have studied and worked in computer science, as a systems and network admin, software developer, and systems architect since 1977. A few of the exciting places where I have worked include Cornell University, AOL, Discovery, and NASA. I am currently supporting a project at the FAA.

From 2012 to 2018, I worked to create and support the Greenbelt MakerSpace as a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, personally investing over $100,000 in the early years. We kept our doors open, free of charge, 6 days a week, for after-school, evening, and weekend activities. Our primary source of revenue to cover operating expenses came from summer camps. And our most popular camp was Minecraft where I fell in love with the richness of the platform.
