KDE Application Development provides a no-nonsense approach to writing applications using the KDE and Qt for Linux developers with limited or no GUI or desktop programming experience, as well as for GUI developers from other platforms who want to learn to create Linux applications. It covers such essentials as: understanding how the K Desktop Environment (KDE) applications can communicate with each other; using the essential widgets available in the KDE and Qt to build consistent applications; writing an application from its initial stage to its full-featured completion; effectively using the Window Manager's Session Management tool; and learning hwo to drag and drop between KDE applications.

Uwe Thiem has created an easy introduction to KDE programming that is readable and useful. Don't be put off by the small size of this book. KDE is not Bloatware and Uwe is not your typical in 23 days formula author. He is on the KDE team and obviously knows the subject matter. I look forward future efforts by Uwe Thiem.
