That’s good that you start by learning Java before starting with JME.
I didn’t completely watch the tutorial but for a starter, he does not follow java naming convention.
A class name should start with a capital letter. variable names use camel cases like that “myVariable”.
Of course it will not fail otherwise, but that a convention to do so.
This only would make me not consider this as a good learning resource.
I learned how to program Java from Bucky too!! I Watched all his basic tutorials Christmas 2010. That was my first programming language. All-in-all, he’s not bad for learning programming basics, but he does leave a lot out. For example, he doesn’t teach how to use multiple classes. If you’ve never programmed at all before, I’d strongly recommend his tutorials (although he can get a little chatty sometimes).
You don’t need his Java game programming tutorial series though. It only goes over the bare basics of 2-D games, like programming you’re own frame buffer. All those things are taken care of within JME.
