Register for January 14 Live Session with Microsoft Experts
Join us for an interactive Live Session on Wednesday, January 14, 2009 (Thursday, January 15 in some regions)! In this hour-long, interactive session, Sean Jenkin will discuss how to develop a Windows or Xbox 360 based game using XNA Game Studio, even if you have never programmed a game before. During this session, you will learn about XNA Game Studio and how to get going on an Imagine Cup-inspired game in less than 30 minutes. We’ll dive into code and talk about ideas for getting started on your game!
Sean Jenkin is currently a development lead at Microsoft and part of the XNA Community Team. For the past year, he has been developing the Xbox Live Community Games system and the XNA Creators Club web site at http://creators.xna.com. Prior to the XNA team, he worked at Microsoft Game Studios helping to develop, test and publish games such as Gears of War, Project Gotham Racing, Viva Piñata, Kameo and a number of other Xbox and Windows titles.
