    In a way I'm joking, but maybe you could learn something from it.


    Specifically what language are you wanting to learn?

    EDIT: Oh, just noticed what section you posted it. So you're wanting to make a DS game.
    It's not as easy as you think, and other people are sure to tell you precisely why.

    I would recommend getting the basics of C down by learning on a PC first.

    Get CodeBlocks -- download and install it. http://sourceforge.n...mingw-setup.exe
    This pdf looks good as is a reasonable length: http://phy.ntnu.edu....chen/ctutor.pdf
    Learn by typing the examples up and compiling them.

    Once you have these C basics down download DevkitPro and start playing around with the example .nds programs to learn the peculiarities of the DS system. http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/Automated%20Installer/devkitProUpdater-1.5.0.exe/download
    I usually start my projects off one of the examples. It's a good way to do things. :)
