Start with doing some investigation as to how these games where created.
For Angry Birds it was AFAIK Unity. This is a very Indie- and Beginner-friendly Game Engine.
Be aware that you can either develop a game with the help of an existing engine, which will give you a headstart and relieve your from coding some of the low level stuff, or you could write everthing from scratch, which will give you more control and the ability to practice your programming skills more.
Most of all, just do it. Find an Engine or Language, get an idea for a first project, and start creating.
