Is there a device tree porting HOWTO anywhere? If I have a board

If I'm writing a new board support, what device tree bits do I need to
get a shell prompt on a serial port running out of initramfs?
(Physical memory, interrupt controller, timer to drive the scheduler,
serial chip...)

There's a bunch of device tree reference material out there, but no
tutorial material at all, that I can find...

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
