Great to hear that. We will support you with your first steps of course ;-)

Are you already using digikam for KDE4? Your first step would be to set up 
your KDE4 development environment (get devel packages from your 
distribution), get digikam and kdegraphics/libs from SVN and compile.

If you have a certain functionality that you really would like to implement 
that is a good starting point. Or you just run digikam and find out something 
bothering you, so start reading the code...
We do not have a meta-documentation of our codebase (in the sense of "this 
folder contains the code to...") but there are comments and API docs of 

We are currently in bug fix mode and will start with new features only after 
0.10 is released, so little bug fixes are most welcome ;-)

Have fun
