What do I need to start writing Nuke Plugins?

Pretty much everything you need comes with nuke. If you’re talking about python plugins then look at the Python Developer’s Guide which is linked from Documentation/index.html in your Nuke installation.
If you want to write C++ plugins then you need a C++ compiler and to set it up to build and link the plugins. This is pretty straightforward on linux of mac but probably more painful on windows.
