Lwt comes with a manual, which should be enough to get you started.
If you are looking for real-world examples, then the source of the
Ocsigen server is the most obvious place to look.

(Lwt was my first exposure to the monadic style of programming; this
caused some head-scratching in the beginning, but after a while it
became second nature.  I reckon this experience might be common to
other Lwt users).

Hope that helps,
