I'be begun to learn java using thenewboston java tutorial series and so far I've gotten to about video #30. The videos are beginning to get boring for me since I can't really apply what I've learned to anything yet. My question is, can I follow a plugin tutorial series rather than a java tutorial series and still get a good grasp of the java programming language? My goal is to ultimately learn java not just for plugins, but so I can expand my knowledge of programming and eventually learn new languages. EDIT: Also, if it is possible for me to learn java by using tutorial on making plugins, which series would you recommend?
