Add-On Development Tutorial/Walkthrough

I'm a PHP developer and interested in doing some work with Concrete5, and it looks like I'll need some custom add-ons to do what I need to do.

I've looked at the available documentation, but I was wondering if there are any walkthroughs/tutorials that go through the steps necessary to create a concrete 5 add on. I've looked at one which details blocks (very helpful), and I've looked at the source of some available add-ons, but I'm looking for something more along the lines of a walkthrough or tutorial, illustrating the steps necessary to create some generic add on.

I know how to do these things in regular PHP, but I'd like a little more guidance with how to do them within C5.

Been looking for this too,
there isnt really is the answer im afraid.
best you can do is solve problems step by step, see what you want to do, and google each specific problem and see if anyone has posted before how to do it, If in doubt then ask here. Thats what ive been doing.

Also, try installing a plugin and playing around with the code, see if you can alter it,

The block tutorial is pretty good reall, and there is a Dashboard one here :

I highly recommend Remo's new book available thru a link here:

As well as experimenting with JordanLev's excellent Designer Content block which will create a block to your specs. Study the resulting code and you'll learn a lot:
