Gnome is GTK based and KDE is Qt based. You have to decide where you feel more comfortable and have more proficiency.

My suggestion is to use Gnome because it's GTK based ,and you can find a lot of pdf courses and help from the internet , this is not the case for QT .
Regards.Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.

Regarding the literature-there are free tutorials in the Internet, but the "Bible" of Qt is
"C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4" (unfortunately it is not free).
The only advantage of GTK is that it is under GPL, whereas Qt is under QPL (free for the noncommercial GPL projects but terribly expensive for commercial ones).
Also, I dare to say You are programming not "for the desktop", You are writing an application.
Regardless what You choose, your app will be working both under GNOME and under KDE.
