Writing own bindings


I just ordered a smart power-outlet and it doesn’t seem to be supported in OpenHAB. I can control it with Alexa for now… so that will be enough for a start, however, I am currently highly interested in openHAB and am already using it in my house… so, I’d like to know what is needed to write a binding for a device. Is there a beginners guide to this?

Thanks in advance
