As we speak, a number of exciting panels are underway! Recently completed panels include: The Voxel Box presentation (with special guest, SethBling), which covered the many challenges of map-making, modelling and more. Also recently completed, an in-depth Q&A session with Markus "Notch" Persson. Additionally, I recently moderated the Modding Pro Panel, with secret special guest and Mojangster, Erik "Grum" Broes, and a surprise appearance by Jens "Jeb" Bergensten! The gurus of modding touched on a number of topics, such as the challenges, pitfalls, and rewards of big-time modding, as well as an insider's perspective on the upcoming Mod API and how it will interact with current and future mods, and a lot more - videos coming soon!
In the meantime, enjoy an insider's view on their travels to Minecon:
