In all honesty, my first addon, I created on my own 7 years ago after fooling around with code for a while. I've had 3 years of experience with Lua already, so it wasn't that difficult to pick up. With few exceptions, all of the addons I've ever used, I wrote myself.

Some of the ones I published would help new players a lot, one of which I would recommend is SlashHelp, which would allow a new player to discover the game's slash commands.

I remember DamageMeters, I also remember hacking their sync system in BC and randomly bumped someone with a harmless damage output like the healer or the tank to the top of the damage list. As a rule, I never altered my own damage or the damage of any other DPS in the group. It was funny enough as-is.
Fun times.
