I would like to know if it's possible to fill the Author field of the ArticlePage example (tutorial 2), automatically.
I was thinking about some way to identify the username that is adding the content (something like a $username variable), and fill the DB field with his/her username without typing it (without filling the author field with his/her name manually).

Yes, sure this is possible.
Just do something like this in the getCMSFields function:
$member = Member::currentUser();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new TextField("Author", "Author", $member->FirstName . " " . $member->Surname));

That's exactly what I needed.
