[maemo-developers] New to N900 and Qt, what's the best place to start?

I'm beginning to learn Qt using the book "C++ GUI Programming with Qt
4 (2nd Edition)", along with Qt online documentation and Google (of
course), and I'm also a recent owner of a N900. I use Gentoo Linux &
KDE4 on my PC and have no problem creating Qt programs to run on my PC
environment. I'd like to start making some for my N900 as well. For
now I'll just try to make "hello world". :)

What's the recommended dev environment to produce Qt-based software
for the N900/Maemo5? SDK Virtual Machine? MADDE? Is qt-creator going
to be able to cross-compile to maemo target in my native Linux PC
environment in the near future? Can I develop in qt-creator and then
compile in the other environment? Since I'm just starting from scratch
I'm open to any suggestions...  I realize from googling that debugging
in N900 might not be so easy right now and hopefully more IDE-based
support is coming.

I appreciate any advice on where to begin my journey, thanks!
