    I have a great idea for a plugin, I'm pretty sure its possible, but I have very little knowledge of coding. I can write a hello world script in java, C++, and python, and that's about it. I am not posting what my plugin idea is here due to the fact that it would probably be stolen. I'm hoping someone can teach me for free or link me to a good guide. I can use Skype, but not voice or video chat with strangers. I'm not entirely a stranger to computers, so I most likely won't need walkthroughs on installing programs (i.e. eclipse, JDK [both of which I already have, just examples], etc.)


    P.S. Sorry if this is the wrong section.

    @Ildigrub you'll need to know more java than that, a lot more. Bukkit is coded in Java, so before you learn bukkit, look up a few tutorials on the basics of Java before you attempt to write a plugin.

    @Ildigrub Learn Java. Simple as that. There are some hundreds of tutorials on the web. Learn it using something you enjoy - games, maybe, or maybe generators - I don't know. However, do not attempt to learn it based on one specific API, like Bukkit. A couple of specific topics that aren't taught in the average scrub tutorial are threads, file loading / reading, and event busses. These will be helpful in Bukkit.

    Go to your local bookstore and buy "Java For Dummies." It is simply the most informative Java book I've ever read, and you'll be coding complex software in no time.
