How on earth do you create a WordPress plugin?

Have you ever wanted to create a WordPress plugin?

Creating WordPress plugins is hot and has been for years now. The trend in plugin creation also shows no signs of waning.

Why are plugins so hot?

Because usually, if they are made well and designed with thought and a dash of love they solve a problem. They make life easier for us mere mortals that couldn’t live without the code geeks add ons.

Creating free plugins gives you credibility and enhances your reputation in the WordPress community. Add to that a dash of link love as well.

Creating premium plugins gives you the same as the free plugins but also offsets the expense of creation, development and support.

So how on earth do you create a plugin?

That was the question the team at Foo Plugins asked themselves this week when they wanted to teach a member of staff, Matt,  how to make a plugin.   You can follow along on both the Foo Plugins website and see how they teach Matt.   Then you can switch over to Matt’s blog and see how he is going with the process.     They’ve given this plugin creation project the cute name of  Foo Camp

It’s free to follow along with this project and I’m sure you will learn something just by watching over the shoulders of  team Foo and Matt.   It will be interesting to see what Matt comes up and what struggles he encounters along the way.

I’m ready to grab my popcorn and notebook and join in!
