Programming for Beginners: QuickStart
Basically, a menu entry called "Start Developing" or something similar could be added in the Programming sub-menu in the Main Menu.
This could either open up an application, or open up a browser to a place such as develop.ubuntu.com.
Either way, the application or website would provide a basic explanation of programming and how to start. For example, a list of programming languages/SDK's and their advantages could be shown. For example:
-Python: Easy to learn and use.
-GTK C++: Best integration into Ubuntu and Gnome.
-Java/Eclipse: Develop Java-based multi-platform applications.
-Qt C++: Multi-platform self-supported SDK.
Obviously this is not a complete list. In addition more details could be provided, distinguishing between each language. (When I first wanted to program in Ubuntu, I didn't start for a while because, coming from Microsoft, I didn't know what language to use).
After choosing a particular language, a short tutorial and a link to the website/download information would be provided.
