July 2011 Meetup!!


Our July 2011 Meetup is scheduled for July 18th from 6PM to 8PM @ TechColumbus. Please see details below & kindly RSVP.

Lets XNA on the phone!

It’s true! We can have a lot of fun building great games with XNA on the new Windows Phone 7 platform!! We will see how easy it is to build a very simple game from scratch using the emulator and then turn it into a lots of hours of playing fun on your phone after deploying to a WP7 device. Topics covered: Creating art using Paint.Net, creating sound, using accelerometer etc. A brief overview will be provided of the app/game submission process and we will also take a peek at some new Mango features. Time permitting, we will cover the support for sound in Windows Phone 7. Hope you enjoy!
