MonoGame for Windows 8 session from Tampa Code Camp

This past Saturday was the Tampa Code Camp, and it was a fantastic event. I had high hopes going in for my session on using MonoGame to create a Windows 8 Store game, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. I was using a laptop I haven’t used before for presentations and didn’t realize I would need a HDMI to VGA adapter. Sessions were only 50 minutes long and I lost almost 20 minutes getting set up so there wasn’t much time left. So stuff happens but the mishaps of the day may turn out to be a good thing, since I plan on doing the following to make up for it. First of all, here are the slides, demo script, and source code for the presentation:

I really like this presentation, and since I didn’t get to present it properly I also plan on doing a series of blog posts detailing the steps in the presentation and also a screen recording of what the presentation was supposed to be.
