Hi Dan,

There is no silver bullet, on the chirp's wiki search for /'developer', 
there is a frew simple guide for developers.

I will suggest this steps to you:

 1. Subscribe to the developers maillist chirp_devel at intrepid.danplanet.com
 2. Setup a dev environment (clone the chirp repo, dev wiki page has
    info about it)
 3. Search on similar radios from the same OEM (Yaesu) usually OEMs tend
    to make one simple protocol for many radios, and you then need to
    tweak only the mem part, that also tend to be reused also.
 4. Decide if you it worth creating a new drivers or reusing some of the
    actual code (Yaesu has a lots of reusable code)
 5. Start coding
 6. Don't hesitate to ask question on the dev list, may be you became
    the next Yaesu Guru for Chirp!
 7. Funny, I was called recently by a user the 'Chirp's Kenwood Guru'
    ;-) on the chirp's wiki (not a guru at all, just hard work)

Happy hacking and Holiday, HNY to all.
