I'm afraid we don't have really good tutorials on writing plugins - it's been 
mentioned many times but noone ever sat down and actually wrote something 
sensible. Instead, we have to refer to existing plugins, some of which are 
thankfully relatively simple to understand and can be used for guidance in 
writing a new plugin.

Also, please feel free to ask any questions here on the list, or in #kdevelop 
on IRC. We will help you out as good as possible.

One thing that would help me help you is knowing more about what kind of 
features you want to work on. Could you be more specific?

It's probably only valid for KDE4 based Kate, and not the newer KF5 based
