Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 6th and 7th, 2012session
Windows 8 & Windows Phone XNA graphics and sensor integration
About This Session
This advanced session will teach attendees the details of how to generate XNA graphics and to integrate those graphics with Windows 8 tablet & Windows Phone sensors. We'll start with the basics of generating simple XNA graphics and work our way up to complex objects with numerous examples. We'll then go over initializing the compass, accelerometer, and camera sensors and utilizing their data. This will include sensor limitations and orientation details. Finally, we'll cover how to integrate the graphics and sensor data into a seamless application that can be the basis for any alternative reality applications. Attendees will need experience with .NET and C#. Some 3D graphics knowledge such as OpenGL, DirectX, or XNA would be recommended. This session will cover C# and 3D matrix manipulation. All of the example applications and slides will be made available to attendees beforehand so that they can follow along during the session.
