It depends a bit if you want to contribute to an already existing project or 
start your own.

The basic step is always to get a working KDE development setup, e.g. 
installing your distribution's "-devel" packages for KDE.
When contributing to KDE core applications or libraries it might be necessary 
to get the development environment from KDE's source repository.

The next step for contributing to an existing project is to get the project's 
sources , preferably from its source resposity, and build it with your 
development setup.

When starting a new project, it is up to you if you want to use a source 
repository, though I recommend this even if it is just a local one.

While it is possible to get a KDE SVN account for a totally new project, it is 
usually easier to use a public repository service like soucreforge.net first 
and later move the project to KDE's SVN if other considered it useful as 

The following link is the entry point to KDE's developer documentation. It 
should answer most of your questions in detail. 

If there is still something unclear, please ask on the general developer 
mailinglist kde-devel
