Game development with XNA ( programar en XNA )

Anexo un email que me enviaron y que puede servir para comenzar a programar para XNA Revitalize your Computer Science program with Game Development with XNA: Semester 1. This exciting and engaging computer science semester course enables students to apply a basic foundation in programming to create games and simulations for social causes using C# and Microsoft XNA Game Studio. Teaching resources and C#/XNA software are free. C# is a modern, professional object-oriented programming language which when combined with the Microsoft XNA framework creates the XNA Game Studio – a professional game development environment for PC, Xbox 360, and Windows Phone. Students will: • Address social causes and real-world problems • Explore game and simulation development as communication and art • Apply knowledge of variables, conditionals, loops, object-oriented programming, recursion, and data structures to game creation. The free curriculum package includes: • Teacher Roadmap • Daily lesson plans • Demonstration projects • 14 video tutorials • 22 lab assignments and solutions • Student activities • Assessment tools with keys and exemplars An online Microsoft Partners in Learning community provides support for teachers (http://us.partnersinlearningnetwork.com/Communities/xna_game_development/). Lessons are aligned to CSTA, ITEA-STL, and ISTE-NETS standards. Success Scenario: Students who have had experience with a structured programming language and a basic understanding of variables, conditionals, loops, and object-oriented design. Download today!
