Today is one of those WordPress days. You’re sitting down at your computer. You’ve got a plugin you want to write. You’ve heard that object-oriented programming is pretty awesome so you want to use it (obviously).
You create your plugin folder. You add your empty “index.php” (right?). You create your “WP_Kickass_Plugin” class in “kickass-plugin.php”. Sweet, you’re in business. Time to get into the meat of things.
