Something that has been proven to be helpful at KDE is a tool  to generate an initial application skeleton, e.g. build system files, usual "main" function, example class. It has a kind of instant satisfaction effect for beginners as they can build and run the skeleton right away and start experiementing with whatever their actual idea for the app is. It is also quite nice for experienced developers when they are writing tutorials because they don't have to describe the project initialization step in detail and reference files that need to be modified by name instead of generic terms like "the main class' header file". See  for such a tutorial. Cheers, Kevin  http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/kdesdk/kapptemplate/index.html  http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/Akonadi/Application
