See the tutorials on http://doc.trolltech.com/4.6/index.html which will give
you a nice introduction. But this is mainly the GUI part of Qt programming,
that you won't need so much when programming in KDevelop. There you more need
an idea about what the Qt Core library provides you with, and how to use the
You can look at some of the "simpler" plugins. For example the Snippet one
(kdevplatform/plugins/snippet), documentswticher, grepview... Especially the
latter could need some help so maybe you could get started by improving it?
There are some bugreports for it. And things like context menu (find word under
cursor / find selection) are missing. And well, as soon as you use it you'll
probably find more places which could be improved. Just an idea.
These plugins would give you an overview of how KDevelop integrates plugins,
how one can add toolviews and utilize them.
The more complex parts like Debugger, VCS and Language Support integration are
harder to get into. But for language integration, I would say the CSS plugin
would be a good starting point. It has a small code base.
