Similar or not doesn't really matter. You will always have easier to learn if you know another programming language because you understand a lot of the basics already and can see patterns by looking at others code.

I wouldn't call them extremely similar but they have some things in common. The syntax has similarities (but so does many other languages).

I would recommend AMXXPAWN a good starting point since memory is extremely simplified.
Everything is 32-bit "cells" or an array of them. Integer, strings, floats, booleans... everything. No need for casting.

Start by looking at simple plugins and just write similar plugins yourself. There are also numerous threads on this forum on where to begin.

I recommend trying to write a plugin with a console command that will give you an amount of health, armor, money or similar as your first project. Then it kind of depends on where you want your knowledge to grow.

First lesson: Search, Search, Search. For example, you might have found that many other people have asked this question or that there is an entire subforum dedicated to tutorials and there is even a thread that lists a bunch of good ones.

Thank you so much for these recommendations! Your recommendations are really very helpful to me. Believe it or not, switching to something humanitarian helped me a lot while studying amxx scripting. I have read several articles about Shakespeare on the site https://graduateway.com/shakespeare-essay-topics/, and while learning scripting, I often read his works. It helped me a lot morally.

While learning, especially at the beginning, copy-pasting is perfectly fine as long as you try to understand the code. Just don't pretend it is yours, use copy-pasting solely as a learning technique.
