I'm excited to announce that my first article on Wildfire plugin development has been published. What originally started off as a blog post grew into something much larger (and longer), so at Matt's urging the content was reworked and a space for it on the Ignite Realtime site was carved out.
The article walks the reader throught the development of a "Message of the Day" plugin that will send users a greeting each time they sign-in to Wildfire. Over the course of the article a number of plugin specific API's are examined along with other, core Wildfire API's. The completed plugin is fully functional but leaves room for a number of additional features.
As always, any and all feedback is welcome.
See you on the forums,
