The language of choice for Mac programming is Objective C. Using Objective C and XCode as you IDE exposes you to MAC OS X full functionality. There are many books on Objective C as well as good tutorials. Apple have many good introductory tutorials for both Objective C and Xcode (Xcode is included with Mac OS X).

Additionally, most other programming languages can be complied for Mac.
