    You need to learn C/C++ first off. Then, you can install devkitPro and look at the examples given there, and various open source homebrew, and learn from them.

    If you want something slightly simpler, you could use PALib, which is essentially a "high level" programming language, which basically means its simpler to understand, but its also not as powerful (i.e. you can't do as much with it), but you can do a lot, and it should be completely sufficient for starting out. You still need to learn C/C++ though.

    Your final option is to use one of the several available DS Game Makers. Not sure the exact names of these, but the one I tried a while back simply refused to work for me. You may have better results.
