Well, all the Open Source GIS, like GRASS, Qgis, OpqnJUMP etc have their code for download. GRASS has a programmers guide (or of sorts).. will it not be of help.

  I’m starting a new vector-based GIS for a volunteer group and I was hoping to find some “vendor-neutral” material in this area. I’ve been using the “Designing Geodatabases: Case Studies in GIS Data Modeling Book” by ESRI when I decided it would be nice to have a tutorial for people who decide to design their first GIS outside of ESRI’s world.
  I made an outline for such a document or tutorial which you can find here:
  I thought that I would try to review other material on the subject, if there was any, before I write the article.
  I appreciate any references or suggestions.

  P.S. – I’m going to shoot this off to the Geowanking list as well.
