I would recommend you to take a look at Erik Sandberg's master thesis,

Is there some kind of basic developers guide, tutorial or message thread
dealing with the basic concepts of extending Lilypond?

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.
