Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

C++, Qt, Kde

I want to learn how to program in C++/Qt for the KDE GUI as well as CLI applications on Linux. I need a good tutorial or even a good book for beginners on these topics. I am an absolute beginner, I've only ever programmed in Turing at school, and HTML but that's not programming GCC will be my compiler and I'll be using the KDevelop IDE. Could you guys point me in the right direction? Thanks.

FWIW I suggest you start getting to grips with just C++, with its classes, Standard Template Library, etc. Then try the Qt tutorials and knock up some simple Qt apps, and then finally deal with KDE intergration.

I'd work things in this order:
KDevelop tutorials
Qt Designer tutorials

The last 2 should be on your system if you have a recent version of KDE. Some things to look at while learning C++:

A lot of experts go to those sites, some of whom have written the software you use as well as the inventor of C++ himself. Then of course you need to know how to use the compiler on your system, since a lot of tutorials are geared toward MS:
