    You don't code .CIA files, they're derived from .3ds dumps. Do you mean 3DS homebrew?

    Well. Dumping .3ds files can already be done by the popular Decrypt9/Hourglass9 so it's kinda pointless wanting to make something of the same thing?

    Well first, what is your background in coding?

    Alright, then you need to learn C and C++ for this. You also should look at the wiki here
    As well get yourself well versed in the 3DS hardware and userland programming. As well 3DS homebrews aren't .3DS, userland files are .3dsx files, that's really important to know.

    I don't know anyone teaching 3DS hacking. Most people learn through personal research and have a long background in hacking. This isn't something someone learns over night. It's something people dedicate a good chunk of their life to.
