PyQt contains a lot of example code in the examples3/ subdirectory, including 
Python versions of the code for the Qt tutorial that comes with the Qt docs.  
Boudewijn Rempt's book on PyQt programming is also available on line (don't 
have the URL handy).

PyKDE includes a few example programs in its examples/ subdirectory, including 
a KSystray example (systray.py). In addition, there are some program 
templates in templates/. The programs in templates/annotated have comments; 
the same programs are in templates/basic with comments stripped.

I'd start with the Qt tutorial - the same concepts are needed for KDE
