Where Does the Initialization Logic Go in a ArcGIS AddIn?

I'm migrating a COM Component that I developed in VS 2003 for ArcGIS 9 to an AddIn in VS 2008 for ArcGIS 10. 

However, I can't figure out where to put initialization logic for components such as buttons since they no longer have an OnCreate function.  I know from the the documentation that "all initialization logic should be moved to the add-ins constructor"... but I don't know what that means. 

Can someone please help me?
