I am new to Joomla development and am trying to make a, in my mind at least, very simple component, but I can't seem to find the right tutorials online. I've already looked at the Joomla! Docs for creating a component, but it isn't explained very well if at all. I want to create a component which has only a backend with two text boxes and a submit button, that's it. I don't want any lists, toolbars, or anything else, just two textfields and a button. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very appreciative.

Assembling all the files and the component setup is tedious and time consuming. I'm sure there is a very relevant place to understand the build process from scratch but the mentioned creator assembles the component to about a 90% completion.
Here's the video I used to learn how to get started with Component Creator: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OXkZTxN3r98
It's free to use for one database table and small monthly fee to build with unlimited tables. I start all my components with this resource
