Hi Konstantinos,

Welcome to GNOME!

The core component to GNOME is the gtk+ library,
When you program in GNOME, you use the GTK+ library and make use
of the features that the GNOME Desktop offers (such as notification
messages, etc).
GTK+ is written in C, so you can program in either C or any of the
supported language binding available.
The languages that you mention above are all supported with GTK+.
If you are happy with C, I would recommend to use C, which would help
if you want to debug something in the gtk+ library.

You can find tutorials on learning gtk+ at the tutorial section, at
Set up your build environment (favorite text editor, compiler,
development libraries)
and compile the hello world applications.

GNOME uses the git version control system. If you want to grab the
source code of a GNOME program, you can
git clone git://   to get the source code of 'zenity'.
Find all programs at

The GNOME wiki is with lots of info.

The gtk+ development mailing list is 'gtk-devel' which covers gtk+
development issues.
This list is mostly a catch-all of general discussion about GNOME,
answering questions
such as this one.

There is also (check out the mailing list!).

Hope this helps,
