After the summer break it is time for another session for our user group. For October we are joined by a familiar face from the developer community, Simon (Darkside) Jackson, and we will be deliving into an area many of us have always wanted to know about, games development using XNA.
Beginning XNA nuts and bolts
A walk through a beginners XNA experience including all the important bits
from 2D/3D graphics to Audio and input. We'll run through all the basics and terminology before diving into code.
and producing a pretty space shooter game. Aimed to be a heavy Q&A session so come armed with your thoughts!
