No, it's the right way. Note : if you touch only the plugin code, you just
need to re-install the plugin. That all. So go to
build/core/dplugins/.../_your_plugin_  and run make install/fast as root.

yes for the basis. But you are there to learn. The DK code base is already
a good example and fully coded with Qt API (1.5 M code lines). Explore and
ask in this room if necessary.

I am comfortable in learning about it. So, please suggest me some tutorials

Qt provide a package to install with all examples  used in Qt API doc. it's
a first start. Else look in Qt wiki forum, StackOverflow, Youtube, and the
learn area from LinkedIn SN.
