XNA Framework Games at Swedish Game Awards 2007

I read a post from Michael Klucher Program Manager – XNA Community Game Platform. In his post Awesome XNA Framework Games at the Swedish Game Awards 2007, he mentions a new award category – Best XNA Game.

During my talks on Careers in Technology when I start talking about access to resources, I normally mention that students should download the Free Hobbyist version of Visual Studio, and they should look at XNA Game Studio Express. I figure if you are going to learn programming you may as well be doing something fun.

These games are an example of what can be done using XNA Game Studio Express.

Nic Fillingham Microsoft Evangelist has a video about XNA on On10.net covering GDC 2007 – XNA Challenge; Four Games in Four Days. On this post is link to source code for the XNA games created during the competition.

These are great resources if you are interested in learning to how to program using Microsoft Visual Studio and XNA Game Studio Express.
