That's what I was looking for in vain when I got in touch with Haiku for the 
first time. I believe it to be extremely helpful for interested developers 
coming from the Windows world to have a hands-on step-by-step introduction. 
Making success experiences easier to achieve and with less frustration could 
make the potential devs feel more comfortable with Haiku development and 
prevent them from throwing in the towel. In my opinion an additional part of 
the mentioned walthrough should be debugging along with hints on where and how 
to find relevant logfiles.
