The general equivalent of this page is 
https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved
- it gives an overview of the areas you can get involved in, and links 
to
pages with more detail about how to get involved in that way.

I think it makes a nice jumping-off point, and is good for emphasising 
that
writing code is far from the be-all-and-end-all of KDE.

It's very much a community involvement page, though, and techbase needs 
an
equivalent whose selection is more along the lines of "I want to write 
code /
I want to use the Frameworks in my own project / I want to deploy KDE 
software
to 20 000 computers". The "how to build our software" is just one part 
of
that.

Co-ordinating the "development" track on the community wiki and the 
"build /
send in patches" track on the techbase wiki is going to take some 
thought,
though.
