    Hello, first of all this is my first post and I hope i'm posting this in the right place!
    I know this question must of been answered tons of times so sorry :(

    I am completely new to learning, I don't know any languages.
    but i am looking to learning java as i want to start developing plugins for my future server.
    so i have some questions that you hopefully help me out on! :)

    1: Wheres the best place to learn java? even if its a book?
    2: how much java will i need to learn for plugins? sure i would love to know tons of java, but for now i just want to know as much that will let me build plugins.

    and 3: how long will this learning process take? i will be learning 24 7 as i have no life lol...

    thanks for taking your valuable time in answering my Questions :) and also, im pretty stupid in learning so will it be hard for me to learn? thnx!

    I liked Java For Dummies. But thenewboston is a great YouTube channel in my opinion.

    @timtower @Halmerson thank you both for your help, i chose to watch Derek Banas as it looks like he has heaps of tutorials. also how much java will i need to learn to make plugins? learning heaps would be good, but i only would be using Java to make plugins so i dont think ill need to know tons? right?

    @Kawaii_Kat17 All depends on what kind of plugins you want to make.
    Things that you need to know: object oriented programming, constructors, sets/collections, maps, avoiding static, normal flow control and basic debugging.
    Those things are the basics.
