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

I am the head of a small development team, so small that I don't have my full team up and "official" yet. However, I am highly interested in developing for Ubuntu and Ubuntu touch! I already develop for apple, mostly iOS, but not strictly, and as soon as some of my projects are up and running in that area, I'm going to port some of them to the android mobile OS as well. I also do development for windows, right now just simple games, not really for a profit, nor officially, due to the windows developer program being not so useful. So, being able to expand my development to Ubuntu making me able to develop across all platforms sounds fantastic!

I read on the Ubuntu site about development, and I'm downloading the Ubuntu SDK currently, but I just had some questions that the site didn't answer for me when I was looking around.

Is the Ubuntu SDK strictly for Ubuntu mobile, or is it for the computer OS, or both?

Also, I saw some tips and help guides on the Ubuntu website for Ubuntu development, but I didn't see anything I could use as a valuable resource, so is there any resource that is recommended that I should use to help assist me in Ubuntu Development?

to clarify further: I'm currently using a Ubuntu Machine, and I also have the tools I need to develop for Ubuntu. I would like to know if there is a difference in developing for Ubuntu Touch OS and the Ubuntu OS. Like OSX and iOS both have a core language of Objective-C, but both platforms use two different SDK's since they are two different operating systems.

I also would like to know of any resources to assist me, being that I'm new to these particular tools.

I'm not a newbie to coding, but when dealing with a new platform, it really helps to know the basics of what's going on, rather than diving right in and ending up getting tripped by something simple and trivial.

Again, any help is always appreciated!

You can develop with qml and qt4 for both. –  Kupiakos Aug 22 '13 at 15:59
    
@Casey That comment looks like a very well written question which should be in your question. Consider improving your question with it. :) –  gertvdijk Aug 22 '13 at 16:00
    
@Kupiakos I have qt5, and the Ubuntu SDK, maybe you could post this as answer to my question with some more details, and answer my resources question, if so I think you can accurately answer my question! –  Casey Aug 22 '13 at 16:02
    
@gertvdijk I think I will! :) –  Casey Aug 22 '13 at 16:03
