Nice work. I have started a few extensions myself, but every time I throw my hands up in the air and delete it because I think the documentation is very confusing and assumes a lot about the reader. Your article cleared a few things up for me. I'll have to go back and reread their docs again along with your post. Thanks again!
Glad I could help. This article was more geared towards being an inspiration article rather than a tutorial article so I am happy that it also provided some educational value too.
I agree that there is a lot more to ask of the official documentation. Luckily most (if not all) the extensions that I use today are open source so I learned a lot by just looking at their source code.
