I'm planning on quitting my software engineering job in the near future, and I'd like some practical advice on how to go about it.

As a practical matter, what protocol do most people follow when quitting their job? The only thing I can think of doing is going to my boss's office and saying "My last day will be X" (my boss is not a friendly person--in an introverted, arrogant, misanthropic way--so I don't think he'd expect, nor be comfortable with, much more than that). I hear about "resignation letters"--is it common these days to actually write a letter, or would a brief email suffice? Who would I address it to (my boss, I presume)?
Actual anecdotes would be especially helpful. Thanks!
