Hello,

I set out to read bitcoin core's source software, but I have to say I don't know how to begin with that.  Is there some documentation or guide to do so ?  I'm not talking about the developer guide that explains what the code does, but the structure itself of the code.  I don't even know how to begin.  I could start digging from bitcoind.cpp onward, but is there some guide to help dig through the code structure ?

A good resource would be Core's doxygen docs: https://dev.visucore.com/bitcoin/doxygen/

You can also just start at the entry points and work your way forward from there.
