To speak about the basics you should do a gtp engine as explained here 
http://senseis.xmp.net/?TesujiGoFramework%2FGoTextProtocol (I saw an 
engine which don't do and it's a painful experience)

next you chose a board representation

next you has to implement an engine which generate a random legal move

next you can do a more clever engine as a monte carlo one  using UCT as 
explained here

next you can do something more clever, but it is further than where is 
my bot

a good explanation about modern implementing go software is here 

it is based on pachi a free software engine which can be found here 

(it is in c but can give you good ideas)
