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.

It depends on what OS you are. If you are on Mac or on Linux, install the right version of GCC (Nuke documentation has all the info). Then plow through the example plugins in the NDK to see how they are put together.
