The areas of development needed are the traditional Notes development area using Formula and LotusScript, the help files that come with Designer are a big help.
If starting development then it is recommended to learn Xpages development which uses the eclipse IDE and Java for server side programming.

Some good resources

There are quite some prerequisites when you intend to succeed in this mission:
- thorough knowledge of the Notes client, agents, views and documents
- a good understanding of the Domino server
- programming as a whole (VB makes it easier to learn LotusScript)
- OO programming

What is your background?

And what could make life a lot easier for you:
- start learning Notes development together with others, in a group
- take a Notes training from an IBM Business Partner, to get a quick start
