Java stuff...

Postby shovenose » 20 Aug 2011, 09:45

is Java easy to learn? http://bukkit.org/ is basically an easy way to install plugins on a Minecraft Server. I have a Minecraft Server of my own, so I need some certain functionality that nobody else has done. Should I even bother trying to learn Java and make a Bukkit plugin?

If your not familiar with ANY programming language/scripting language it may have a tough learning curve. Any HTML or VB or other would make it easier to adapt to conventions and syntax. It's pretty complicated

I know HTML, CSS, and a little bit of PHP and a tiny bit of jQuery. Is that a good start?

Knowing that might help, but I'm not exactly sure. The first programming language is always the hardest to learn, and knowing about 6 of them to learn, I don't think it really matters which one you learn first. If you are a good student and apply yourself, then you will learn it. If you find yourself slipping with some of the concepts in the class, just get some tutoring. There will be a lot to absorb but half of it relates more to general programming concepts and not the actual programming language. I myself haven't learned JAVA, but this is what I was told by some Tech specialist I know.

Lol. I still might take a crack at creating my own plugin for my Minecraft Server...but since it's down until I move into the new house I can't do any testing anyway!
