XNA Games Windows PhoneCamp – August 27 – Jacksonville

Jacksonville .NET Code Camp is coming up on Saturday, August 27th. As a special treat, we've got an 'event inside an event'. Chris G. Williams ( @chrisgwilliams ) is making the roadtrip down from Greenville, South Carolina, to run a XNA Gaming Oriented Windows PhoneCamp. Chris is the author of - Professional Windows Phone 7 Game Development - pictured on the right.

The event will follow the format of the 'garage' events we did last year.  A full day event, with early in the day setup for learning XNA from a master, then using a few hours in the afternoon to build a game. I'll have some special prizes for those who START and BUILD the best game during the day. Can't wait for this myself, so I ordered his book!
