Where can I find a complete API reference? I'm not sure where to get started beyond what was shown in the quickly video with Jono Bacon

API reference of what? What video? – trent Aug 2 '12 at 4:49

The closest thing to a comprehensive API reference for Ubuntu can be found at the Resources section of the App Developer site. If you're making a normal quickly app, your most important references will be the Quickly, Python, and Platform pages.

You can also get a manual for the quickly command line tool by typing:

man quickly
