i want to understand the source code thoroughly, but i am not very good at reading other people's code. I have no idea where to start.
The reason i'm interesed in winSCP is twofold:
1) i want to brush up on my C++, understand cryptography in more detail and lean how to build an application from scratch
2) i want to be able to contribute to the open source community.

Do you know which part of the code i could start from? Is there a document describing what each file does, wat each Class is for, and how they interact? Your help would be appreciated.

There's no such documentation :-( In readme file in source code package you can find very brief description of the folders.
