Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am interested in trying the new Ubuntu for phones OS development. (I am not an Ubuntu developer, I am new to Ubuntu. Impressed by the Ubuntu Touch preview, I got interested in learning how to develop for it).

Where can I start with it? I can't find any guidance on the Ubuntu site.

These links should get you started:

How to run the app:
Once you get all of the SDK installed, you can connect your device via USB, QtCreator will be able to detect it, then press Ctrl+F12 to run it on the device.

which language is used for developing apps, QML or HTML 5 ?? –  Krunal Jun 24 '13 at 10:46
    
@Krunal, QML is used to develop the UI component, the actual application(scripting) is done through JS. You can find sample code by referring the sample app link posted above. –  saji89 Jun 24 '13 at 18:00

There is a 34 part QML Tutorial series by Joseph Mills on YouTube. You can download the tutorials using youtube-dl, which is a terminal app that you can install from the Ubuntu Software Center.
