Yesterday, I had the great opportunity to speak at Stevens Institute of Technology about XNA, what it is and how it makes game programming fun and easy. I just talked through the framework and went through the steps of building up a simple pong game, which Dan Waters wrote. Here are links to everything I spoke about:
And CONGRATULATIONS to the Stevens team that has made it to the second round of the Imagine Cup using XNA! (Look at the Leaderboard for Game Development for the team named SITdown Games)
I really enjoy talking about XNA and seeing the light bulbs go off over people's heads when they realize the possibilities. Please don't hesitate to email me if you have questions about XNA, and PLEASE tell me about any projects and games you create!
