Hi, I went through the exact same question a few times ago when I started
studying the TC implementation.  All the material is old but, the thing is,
it didn't exactly move for years since the algorithms are satisfying enough
for most needs.

LARTC is a good source, but I like this one too

After, the sources codes of the kernel (net/sched) are the best
information sources, with the manpages of iproute2

Now, tcng... I don't know what to say, I never personnally used it,
neither got the need for it. I suppose not a lot of people use it.
If you have implementation questions, the best place is the netdev mailing

Good luck,
