Oh Yeah, This Blog is New
You probably noticed: this is our first blog post. We are committed to this blog becoming a useful resource to the Kinect for Windows development community. Our existing product blog (at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/kinectforwindows/) will continue to focus on announcements, product news, and highlighting great, real-world uses of Kinect for Windows. The developer blog (where you are now) will focus on going behind the scenes with the K4W engineering team and will go deeper on the technology and APIs, share tips & tricks, and provide other tidbits of information relevant to those building K4W applications.
We have ideas in mind for future posts but would love to hear from you to understand what topics would be most useful to you. Please use the comments below, hit up the team on Twitter @KinectWindows, or get in touch with me directly (contact info below).
