The plugin tutorial is very helpfull, may be you could create the same for creating modules ?
By the way what is the main differences between modules and plugins ? I'm a bit confused about that.

    Here's a brief description of the different component types:

    As for a module tutorial, if you look at the code of the existing modules you'll get all the info you need. The API has plenty of documentation as well so if you need to know what a method does you can check it out.

    I could write an article providing some pointers but it'd be sort of redundant because if you want to write a module you can pick one of the existing ones that is close to what you want to do and base yours on its code.

    You may find this helpful too:

    And since you asked about it, so will others (probably) so I'm going to write (at least) an "Introduction" article for all component types.

    Edit: Module intro:
