On starting to work on new source code you should start with simple
tasks like fixing easy bugs to get familar with the code. On
https://umbrello.kde.org/developers.php several bug categories are
listed to work on for example "Umbrello junior jobs"

umbrello has already been ported to Qt5/KF5. See
https://umbrello.kde.org/news.php#itemPorttoKDEframeworks5started and
You simply need to install Qt5 and KF5 development packages and add
-DBUILD_KF5=1 on the cmake configure line to build umbrello for KF5.
