    Download DevKitARM through the DevKitPRO installer. It will come with Programmer's Notepad and some example files. Compile a few of those to make sure they work, then you can start messing around with your own projects. The GBAdev forums will be your main resource.

    Alternatively, you could try PAlib, which makes certain aspects of DS coding a bit easier. They've also got some good tutorials to help you get started.
