I haven't seen an tutorials other than searching the web and experimenting.  If you are familiar with Other IDE's, then this one is a breeze because it is similar to all other IDE's out there.

To Create a project, just do file->new->project and it will pretty much configure everything from that point once you choose a project type.

I prefer wxWindows (ver 2.4.2).  If you want to dink around, download the 2.4.2 devpak and add the following to a project.  It is a simple bouncing ball project and shows how to create device contexts, bitmaps and masks.

// File: __basic__.h
#ifndef __BASIC___H
#define __BASIC___H

// For compilers that support precompilation, includes "wx/wx.h".
#include "wx/wxprec.h"

#ifdef __BORLANDC__
    #pragma hdrstop

// for all others, include the necessary headers (this file is usually all you
// need because it includes almost all "standard" wxWindows headers)
#ifndef WX_PRECOMP
    #include "wx/wx.h"

// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// resources
// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

// the application icon (under Windows and OS/2 it is in resources)
#if defined(__WXGTK__) || defined(__WXMOTIF__) || defined(__WXMAC__) || defined(__WXMGL__) || defined(__WXX11__)
    #include "mondrian.xpm"

// main.h
#ifndef MAIN_H
#define MAIN_H
#include "__basic__.h"
#include "myCanvas.h"
// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// private classes
// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

// Define a new application type, each program should derive a class from wxApp
class MyApp : public wxApp
    // override base class virtuals
    // ----------------------------

    // this one is called on application startup and is a good place for the app
    // initialization (doing it here and not in the ctor allows to have an error
    // return: if OnInit() returns false, the application terminates)
    virtual bool OnInit();

// Define a new frame type: this is going to be our main frame
class MyFrame : public wxFrame
    // ctor(s)
    MyFrame(const wxString& title, const wxPoint& pos, const wxSize& size,
            long style = wxDEFAULT_FRAME_STYLE);
    // event handlers (these functions should _not_ be virtual)
    void OnQuit(wxCommandEvent& event);
    void OnAbout(wxCommandEvent& event);
    int dx, dy;
    myCanvas *mc;
    wxTimer myTimer;
    void OnTimer(wxTimerEvent& event);

    // any class wishing to process wxWindows events must use this macro

// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// constants
// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

// IDs for the controls and the menu commands
    // menu items
    Minimal_Quit = 1,

    // it is important for the id corresponding to the "About" command to have
    // this standard value as otherwise it won't be handled properly under Mac
    // (where it is special and put into the "Apple" menu)
    Minimal_About = wxID_ABOUT,
    // Timer Functions
    Timer_ID = -99999,
      // 1000 = 1 second, 100 = 1/10th
    TimerMS = 1

// myCanvas.h
#ifndef MYCANVAS_H
#define MYCANVAS_H
#include "__basic__.h"

#define CANVASX 640
#define CANVASY 480
#define PPUX 32
#define PPUY 32
#define UX ( CANVASX / PPUX )
#define UY ( CANVASY / PPUY )

// Define a new frame type: this is going to be our main frame
class myCanvas : public wxScrolledWindow
    // ctor(s)
    myCanvas(wxWindow *win);
    wxBitmap SetBlankBitmap(void);
    wxBitmap DrawIT(void);

// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// event tables and other macros for wxWindows
// ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

// the event tables connect the wxWindows events with the functions (event
// handlers) which process them. It can be also done at run-time, but for the

    EVT_MENU(Minimal_About, MyFrame::OnAbout)
    EVT_TIMER(Timer_ID, MyFrame::OnTimer)

// Create a new application object: this macro will allow wxWindows to create
// the application object during program execution (it's better than using a

// wxGetApp() which will return the reference of the right type (i.e. MyApp and
// not wxApp)

                                 wxPoint(50, 50), wxSize(660, 560));

    // and show it (the frames, unlike simple controls, are not shown when
    // created initially)

Currently I have written a simple beginners tutorial Beginning with wx-DevCpp which outlines using wx-DevCpp to create a simple minimal sample with toolbar and common dialogs.

Thanks to upCASE for hosting it, feel free to check it out and give me your feedback.

Should anyone require any further explanation feel free to contact me.

The tutorial is here
