I can thoroughly recommend the cheat-sheet I referred to. It is a good start.
It was put together by Zack Rusin, a prominent KDE and Qt developer, and
originally appeared on his blog. It is just one page. I quoted the PDF version
above because it is high-res and easily readable, although the web address
sounds unpromising. When coding I keep a copy in a folder on my desktop
at all times. I wish more Open Source software had such summaries.
So please have a look.
Cheers, Ian W.
