The Architecture of Open Source Applications book[0] gives a high level overview on many open source projects. It's a good starting point to dive into the code of these projects.

Great series of books! There are three now, and a fourth is being worked on which is very relevant to this posts query. There isn't much too it yet, but its working title is 500 Lines or Less, and it aims to implement some manner of a working application in 500 lines or less. There is a GitHub repo [0] where the project is being coordinate.

This book is a fascinating read. Highly recommended to anybody that does non-trivial application development.
