Basic skills for creating Widgets.

Creating basic Dashboard Widgets is not a very difficult task and there is a great chance that you already have most of the necessary skills to create your own basic Widgets! The absolute musts are HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), JavaScript and the ability to use a program for designing graphical images.

An older article that I wrote for SysAdmin magazine may help you understand the basics of Dashboard Widgets.

Did you find the above information helpful? You will find a lot more information in my eBook "Programming Dashboard Widgets". The eBook describes how you can create Apple Dashboard Widgets using many programming languages including JavaScript, Perl, Objective-C, and PHP. You can buy it here.
