New feature class and saving data

I'm very new to Python and I have a question about building an add-in for ArcMap.  I've looked all over for a tutorials, but there are none that answer my question. 

I would like to build an add-in where the user is prompted to click on the map and creates a new point.  This point is then saved to a database.  Any new points created after the first are then appended to the existing database.  Eventually, I would like to make this function work with polygons as well.  Unfortunately, I have no idea where to begin with this. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
