First steps to Wii development.

Hey guys, I want to become a wii dev. I recently learned C and don't know where to start from here, any suggestions to what I should do?

Get Devkitpro / Devkitppc / libOGC.

There are plenty of examples in there for the basics, then check wiibrew.org for fuller examples of projects that have been made using libOGC.

I was going through some source codes for projects and saw that quite a few of them, including wii64, were written in C++. Should I learn both C and C++?

That's up to you. C++ will come in handy for GUI/Game crap. If you "learned" C, then you would understand enough about how C++ works pretty quickly and what situations where it would be easier to write something in either language.

If it's a small tool you're programming, C is fine. But as your project grows, it's easier to start thinking in objects, and at that point C++ will be your friend.
