Xmonad is good but for configuration you have to delve into Haskell,
which is quite an undertaking. Dwm is easier to configure (in C, but you
don't really need to know C to change things). I3 and spectrwm both are
configured with plain text files. Of all of them, my current favourite
is spectrwm (especially version 2.1.0, not yet packaged for Debian). 

I've got a lot about my experiments with tiling wms on my linux page and
my blog.
