Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF51 ultra-low-power (ULP) RF ICs feature a new multi-protocol 2.4-GHz radio and a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 based processor. Add to that Nordic’s novel software architecture for Bluetooth low energy (BLE) and ANT system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions, and you get a system that frees designers from the integration effort, complexities, and restrictions of chip vendor-supplied software frameworks. Customers, then, can develop their designs quickly and easily using the highly popular and familiar ARM Cortex programming environment.

This is a good chip to play with. Then dev kit is only $99 and you can use gnu tools to program it. Only downside is that it needs a newer SWD programmer instead of JTAG. OpenOCD supports SWD but you need to buy new programmer hardware.
