Simple module

Hello everyone,

I’m trying to build my first module but I can’t find a simple tutorial that explains just the basics. I just try to make a block that shows “hello world”. My idea of a module is that it’s a piece of PHP code that can be called by XML code to show something. Is that idea correct?
I’m using this wiki page of the website and the manuals. And don’t forget Google either! But it’s quite hard for a newbie like me to find some good and simple starters information about modules.
I have experience with PHP, MySQL and etc… smile
Can someone help me a bit?
