Important! Please register for this event at http://aka.ms/fallw8game2 so we can have an accurate headcount for the event.
This workshop will introduce higher-level game development tools that produce HTML5 games, including Construct 2 and GameMaker. If time allows, we'll look at additional tools.
The workshop will start with a presentation by Technical Evangelist G. Andrew Duthie, and will also provide hands-on time for you to start working with the technologies covered during the lecture portion.
Note that this is the second of 3 game development workshops, and you can attend just one, or all three.
To participate in the hands-on portion of these events you MUST bring a PC with the following installed:
•Windows 8 (any x86 or x64 version will work fine)
•Visual Studio 2012
(for Windows Store apps, you'll need Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows 8, or higher. For Windows Phone apps, you'll need Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Phone, or higher)
We will NOT have PCs available for attendee use, so please come prepared if you want to work hands-on. If you need a copy of either Windows 8 or Visual Studio 2012, head over to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/apps/br229516/.
For Mac users, there are a variety of boot and virtualization options you can use to run Windows 8 and Visual Studio, which are documented here:
