MineAcademy, and specifically Project Orion, provided what I was missing from YouTube tutorials and Spigot Guides. Well-maintained resources, professionalism, and quality. MineAcademy has provided me with a platform and a community to learn and to create.
Project Orion provides the bigger picture. You don’t just learn to create a simple event listener. You learn the mechanics of how event listeners work. With clear illustrations and explanations. That is what separates Project Orion from any other platform I encountered.
Since Project Orion, I’ve been able to create Minecraft plugins independently. Without Project Orion, I probably wouldn’t have gotten this far, nor would I have created plugins with the quality I do today.
What’s also important is that Matej accepts feedback graciously. Small criticisms are addressed immediately and improvements are quickly made.
