You’ve heard the rumblings and it’s true! Anyone can now build modern games for Windows AND the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Canada wants to show them how!

On Saturday, November 11th, 2006, Microsoft will take anyone who has an interest in learning to build a game for Windows or the Xbox 360 through a day of fun and learning. We call it GAME CAMP. We’re inviting all students and hobbiests who are interested in learning about game development to this free event. We’re even buying lunch!

Please get the word out to the community. Through your blogs, contacts and influencers. Let’s raise this up and fill to capacity!

Call To Action: Please forward to Students, Hobbiests, Usergroup Leaders, Bloggers, MVPs and Regional Directors as well as internal Microsoft employees who know of teenagers or University students that are interested in learning!

Here’s the abstract and session layout for the day.

If building games for the Xbox 360 or Windows gets you excited then you have to be at this event. For the first time, Microsoft will take you through the details of our (soon to be released) XNA Game Studio Express. If you didn’t already know, anyone can now build interactive, high performance games for Windows or Xbox 360. We’ll take you through an introduction of XNA and XNA Game Studio Express. Then we’ll equip you with the skills to start building games ranging from 2-D Arcade to stunning interactive 3-D.

The day starts at 9am so be there. Game On!
