When you say OpenStack's source code is a little broad a question, OpenStack is made up of many different projects. Although many do follow a similar pattern. The OpenStack upstream institute (OUI) tends to run some technical deep dives which includes looking at source code, how it's laid out etc.

Was there any project in particular you were interested in? I'm a member of the First Contact SIG (Special Interest Group) and am happy to help get you connected and talking to the right people.

I'll ask the OUI if there is anything recorded or written down in the way of deep dives.

Generally you could go look at the OpenStack community page or better the contributor guide. Which will help getting involved in the community.

I myself am a Swift core, so if that's the project your interested in, I'd be happy to walk you through. Swift also has:

  • https://github.com/openstack/swift/blob/master/README.rst
  • https://github.com/openstack/swift/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.rst

Which could help get you started.
