It is too bad, at least I think there must be tutorials about how to develop Yafaray.

Yes, there is lack of documentation for developers, it is always difficult to get developers to create and maintain documents about their work.

Anyway there is a lot of resources online about raytracing:

Also much of the work done on YafaRay is based on this book:
http://www.pbrt.org/

If you are a developer I suggest first getting to know well the program itself as an user, then starting with small tasks, for instance one idea from our ideas page (http://www.yafaray.org/node/462) or from the bug tracker (http://www.yafaray.org/development/bugtracker/yafaray)

I think it is C++ for the render engine and python for the Blender exporter. About why developers don't do documents about their work, well it is just a priorities issue, they prefer doing code than paperwork. It is even difficult to get them interested in debugging. But there is nothing bad about it, it is the way things work here, take into account that every collaborator is just donating their free precious time, so every kind of help is welcomed.
