I think today was the first time I actually was thrilled that I go to university… like actually THRILLED!
I went to a seminar hosted by Microsoft on Game Development with Managed DirectX. And it was probably the most enlightening thing I’ve ever participated in at school.
I was stunned at how simple it is to make a 3D game… well the simplicity is in creating and ‘painting’ 3D images on the screen, not at the actual game programming.
As a result of attending I got a free copy of Visual Studio .Net which is pretty awesome, and I got entered in a contest to win a copy of Halo2 (one copy per seminar is being given out, so my chances are pretty good).
All-in-all a pretty kick-ass day.
