    Hey Guys, (and gals)

    I'm looking into getting starting in App development for the Wii. I have a pretty solid background in programming (mainly c, c++,Java with a touch of assembly,Fortran, Lisp and a few other obscure languages thrown in), but have grown rusty over the last few years ever since I left school. I've been ghosting these forums for a while now and have been amazed at the progress that's been made in the last few months and would like to get involved. Only thing is.. I have NO idea where to start...

    What tools do I need? what languages should I be working in?

    Are there any sites dedicated to development I should check out. Any direction to get me started would be great.

    thanks,
    Jim.

    You will be fine with your C/C++ knowledge. Using DevKitPPC (via the link provided by oneleggedjack), you can edit and compile with it's Programmers NotePad. It even has the ability to send to dol over wifi to HBC (just press Alt-R once you have it set up).
