Developer Resources
The ExpressionEngine Developer Resources have entered the building! Have you eagerly been awaiting our developer resources for modules and plugins? Well, go check them out in the new Developer Resources section of the pMachine site. There are step-by-step tutorials with example projects along with detailed information about using ExpressionEngine's native classes. Dedicated forums now exist for discussing your add-on or requesting assistance with that pesky technical problem. In the next few days, a dedicated Developers Mailing List will be available where developers can have email discussions about developing in ExpressionEngine.

Our New EE Plugin Site
We've redesigned our ExpressionEngine Plugins site for better organization. Not only will you find information regarding available plugins, but if you are a developer who wants to learn how to "roll your own" you'll find the first revision of our plugin API documentation. The documentation isn't quite finished but it covers the basics. A big thanks to Chris Curtis who did most of the heavy lifting.

Check it out!
