Reading the Hacker's guide is indeed very important and incredibly helpful
to get going. The most important hint I found in there when I started
off was this:
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/www/hacking.html#code-to-read

Really, go read these header files!

It will not only give you an idea about tons of small bits of the
architecture of the system itself, but also about the style documentation
in this project is written in. And you should be prepared to document
new code in a similar manner.

The documentation in the header files is invaluable.
