Getting Started: Guides and resources for modding Civ V
Here are a couple useful resources for getting started modding Civilization V. If you own Civ V on Steam, you can find the SDK under your 'tools' section in your Steam library.

Resources
The Civ V wiki[wiki.2kgames.com] is a great place with general information as well as tutorials, guides, and tips for modding.

The best introductory guide to modding would be Kael's Modders Guide[kael.civfanatics.net] (though it's a bit dated since he wrote it when Civ5 shipped but it's possibly the most thorough single document available.)

Other Forums
There's also a big modding community over on 2K's forum[forums.2kgames.com]
And another modding community over on http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=393

So I'm in the process of creating a mod, but when I try to test play it on Civ 5, nothing changes. It's not crashing which I suppose is a good sign, but I can't figure out exactly what's wrong with it. I know other users are having the same problem with other mods, so I don't know if its my mod specifically or just a problem the game has loading mods. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Okay. I have a civ made. I followed Kael's guide, the game's own resources, and watched youtube how-to videos. As far as I can tell, my XML is.. Absolutely correct. But in game, all I have is a blank entry in the civilopedia with no leader. The civ name is right, but all the text is gone. The civ also isn't listed as playable. Any advice?

What shows up when you load the game?
It could be an installation problem!
