It's a question that I get often. I hope to get some time to write a proper
tutorial with some example code, in the meantime, I suggest reading old threads
on this mailing list.
Here is one thread specifically about starting with libnice which explains how
to do, what the usual bugs/misconceptions are and some sample code is also shared :

For some reason, the list archives doesn't save messages sent with the list as
CC instead of TO.. so I don't have the messages from Tiago, but you can read
them inlined in my own answers to him.
In one of his mails he sent a sample program which I've attached to this mail.
It's a bit more complex than a simple "libnice hello world", but it should give
you an idea on how to use the API in a real life example.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
