My First Addon-where to start

ok, I finally figured out what I want my first addon to be. a simple one "i think". I want to be able to broadcast on either party or raid channel when I use reincarnation, and then every 10 mins or so it would broadcast my cooldown to either the party or raid channel. But before it even loads, i want it to check to see if the person is even a shaman.

Can someone point me in the right direction to figure out how to do this? and where to start?

to summarize.

load only if class=shaman
broadcast only to raid, or party channel if raid is not present
read when reincarnation is cast
broadcast cooldown every 10 mins or so

Thanks in advance.

Then checkout, and read, the API and Addon Guides at www.wowwiki.com.
Finer details can be found at www.lua.org and of course the official UI Forum.
Once you've got the frame/shell of your addon and still need some help, ask away.
