Week 1

This week we looked at Processing.js:

Week 2

This week is about C++. We will be looking at C++ in the context of OpenFrameworks:

The OF faq has some great links for learning about C++ under the “how can I learn c++?” question:

www.openframeworks.cc/about/faq

You can use the apple developer tools for C++ and OF, in particular XCode:

developer.apple.com/TOOLS/Xcode/

There is an excellent pdf on c and c++ here for those of you who would like to learn more.

XNA

XNA is a microsoft environment for games development, it allows you to create professional level games but is an easier starting point than working with C++ and directX from scratch.

Dowload XNA

The XNA creators club has a lot of great resources for learning XNA, including example games and tutorials (try the getting started video tutorials.).

Here is the example code I showed in class.
