AVR Freaks is a terrific resource for learning to develop hardware and software for Atmel AVR microcontrollers such as the AVR ATmega168 used in the OpenServo. The site may have a funky name and look a little hokey on the outside, but it's a goldmine inside.
AVRbeginners.net is resource for those new to AVR microcontrollers. You'll find general information about the AVR instruction set and architecture as well as code examples and circuits.
