Intro to XNA Game Development on Windows Phone slides and demos from Orlando Code Camp

I’ve done a bunch of sessions over the years on beginning XNA game development but for the Orlando Code Camp I did a major revamp of the presentation and created a new set of demos which build upon each other to make a great start to a game, at least as much as can be covered in an hour.

I have packaged up the powerpoint presentation, very detailed demo script, and source code and made it available here:

The topics include drawing 2D sprites, frame based animation, handling input, playing sounds, and using the Microsoft ad control.

Feel free to reuse all or part of the presentation and demos, my only request is that if you re-present or publish anything that you provide proper attribution and a link to
