So hey guys. Now that i have played minecraft for couple of months and been in these forums for few days i want to give something back for those really awesome plugins. Can you tell me where to start and How long does it take to have enough understanding to do a simple plugin/mod. i once tried learning C++ but i failed at it(well i got to "Hello world" program and than didnt continue because i was really busy and yeah, i call that a failure). Than i wanted to learn java because it looked really interesting and you can do so many things with it! So.... i have absolutely no experience in programming of any kind. I want to become a programmer/coder (w/e you call that in english) when i go to university so i might aswell start now. Its also summer holidays so i have some time to learn it. So please tell me where to start/link me to some guides of learning java/how to make plugins and about how long will it take to learn it. srry, posted in wrong forum. If an mod/admin sees this can he please move it to the right forum? EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
