I want to add features to magento and want to try not changing the magento code it self so it can still be upgradable. So i want to code addons by using plugin method. I don’t see any tuttorials on how to make a plugin only see tutorials on how to design skins for magento. So any tip of where do I look?

This depends a bit on what exactly you want to do. If you want a new module to magento, I’d have a look at the tutorial here:
http://t.wits.sg/2009/03/31/howto-repackageable-custom-extension-development-in-magento/

If you want to override Magento functionality, have a look at the wiki articles here, e.g.
http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/groups/174/changing_and_customizing_magento_code
or
http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/how_to_overload_a_controller

Good luck

Claudia
