AFAICT there is no easy single point. However, when I want to do 
something in LilyPond, I always let myself being guided by the masters.

To accomplish that, I try to find something in LilyPond, which is already 
similar to what I want. Then I try to find the corresponding code by 
sifting through the commit messages, and after that, I look at the patches 
these commits introduced. That gives me a fairly good start, usually.

But I agree, an introduction into the technical concepts would be valuable 
for new hackers. Alas, it is always the problem of time, so if you come up 
with a good introduction, I would be so grateful.
