I'm a long time Ubuntu desktop user, but new to the development world. I'd like to start getting myself familiar with Ubuntu Touch and learn how to develop apps for it, however I'm a little bit lost on where to start.

Can someone point me in the right direction? Also, do I need to get myself a device like the Nexus 4, or is sufficient to use an emulator?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

It would be best to get one of the supported devices (However, it is still possible to use an emulator):

-Galaxy Nexus
-Nexus 4
-Nexus 7 (2012)
-Nexus 10

Then you can install Ubuntu Touch by following the guides here. After that, look here for guides on how to develop your first application for Ubuntu Touch.
