JaxDUG Meets October 7, 2009

Game development using Mono, Unity3d and Blender

Unity3D leverages Mono, an open source implementation of C#, to build out to multiple platforms including Apple's OSX (including IPhone and Itouch), Microsoft's Windows and Nintendo's Wii. This presentation will provide a framework of facts and definitions used in the process of game development along with illustrations from Blender and Unity. I will also demonstrate Unity's C# scripting as it relates to Prefabs used within the engine and how this helps with game play performance cod reuse.

Microsoft .Net Tikihut In Jacksonville October 15, 2009

MSDN Tiki Hut Roadshow - Fall 2009 Run - Blend3 / Silverlight 3/ Opening the Tacklebox on Win7 Dev 

Joe healy and Russ Fustino will be sharing their knowledge next month, October 15, 2009...Here are the sessions that will be covered!

Session 1: Opening the Tacklebox on Windows 7 Development
We'll riffle through the Win7 tackle box and teach you to rig up your Windows 7 development techniques. We'll explore the codepack APIs, sensor kit and APIs, the new desktop widget metaphors, multi-touch, virtualization strategies, and more. Expect a ton of short code snippets illustrating key points. This session will go long, and you’ll be able to reel in all the extras online.

Session 2: Expression Blend 3.0 … The game has changed
The Expression Blend 3.0 SketchFlow feature changes the game when it comes to both developers and designers becoming integrated on the development and design process. You’ll learn how to prototype WPF and Silverlight Applications with amazing speed, and provide review, feedback and documentation with ease. In addition to SketchFlow, you’ll be able to attach behaviors to visual elements in Expression Blend 3 to make them behave a certain way, such as drag and drop or physics. Did you know you can do a direct import of Photoshop and Illustrator? The answer is… yes you can! Learn how to import your Photoshop or Illustrator assets and preserve layer information as all is converted to XAML. You can then take a piece of imported XAML and easily convert it to a button or other element. You don’t want to miss this session.

For ITPro's - the ITPro Tiki Hut will be taking place during the am of each event.  Blain Barton will be leading up such topics as Migrating Windows XP to Windows 7, DirectAccess With Windows 7, and Optimizing Your Environment with Remote Desktop Services and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. To register for this event go to https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032421663&culture=en-US .
