Drunken Coders

Breaking new ground in console homebrew development

First you will need to install devkitARM.  This is a set of tools produced by devkitPro which allow you to compile your source code into Nintendo DS compatible binary.

Setup

Here is a good guide on set up and install of these tools:

Tutorials

Once you have your tool chain installed you will need to learn a bit about the hardware.  The state of tutorials is a bit lacking but it should be enough to get you started.
