There are some great guides on the web to get started :
Evan Miller Guide To Nginx Module Development  and advanced topics 
A bit old, but definitely not dated if you want to learn how it works
Nginx Guts  also has quite a few articles on the core of Nginx.
If you're interested in adding new features, you can find many Nginx  or
3rd-party modules ,
they all add new extensions and capabilities to the core of Nginx.
As for the main() I think it parses the command line options, reads the
configuration and spawn the worker processes.
Then each worker process will start accepting and processing HTTP requests.
Hope that helps,
