Speaking of Nick Landry, if you weren’t at the NYC .NET Developers group last week, you missed out on a great presentation about game programming for Windows & the XBox 360 using C# and XNA. Nick recently had an article published in Code Magazine about XNA programming. He spent the evening showing folks how to write games like Pong for the 360!
The attentive crowd would have stayed all night to see the games that Nick had developed and the .NET code behind them. But Bill Zack, the user group leader, had to chase them out at about 9 PM (an hour after the user group meetings usually end at 8)! Nick has posted his slide deck and code on his blog.
In the spirit of the meeting’s topic, there was the unadvertised raffle of an Xbox 360, two copies of Microsoft Expression Web and some books contributed by various publishers!
Be sure to check out the NYC .NET Developers group site for more information on October’s meetings. The group will host a special meeting featuring Jeff Prosise from Wintellect covering Silverlight on Oct 9th. Jeff will be stopping over in town on his way back from ReMIX 07 Boston and has graciously offered to speak for the NYC group.
