MineAcademy really is great for people learning to become developers, especially if you have no experience. You start of with an incredibly detailed introduction to Java (and this is coming from someone who now teaches at a BootCamp!) and I use a lot of the tips that were provided in these video tutorials in my lectures.
Overall the Minecraft section is also relly detailed and you can tell the lecturer is passionate about what he teaches. He provides a lot of information to keep you on track and going so that you don’t fall down the route of giving up.
My one downfall was the use of Foundation for the entire course (those as far as I can tell there have been additional videos for just the core spigotAPI which is brilliant) which I wasn’t a fan of. I wanted to learn to code plugins using only the spigotAPI so that I got the best exposure for when I eventually wanted to apply for Minecraft servers.
The course is brilliant and has a lot going for it. I highly recommend purchasing it if you are able to or are in general interested in creating Minecraft plugins, this course is for you.
Thank you for your review!
In Project Orion 2.0 we’ve started to teach both ways, using the vanilla Spigot/Paper API as well as using our Foundation build system. So that you will be able to chose what suits you the most!
