Book Announcement

My colleague Jarrett Webb and I have reached the halfway point on our book for APress this week, so it finally seems safe to announce that we are working on Beginning Kinect Programming with the Kinect SDK to be released towards the end of the year.  My original plan for September and October was to blog feverishly on the Kinect SDK, but given the tyranny of the book schedule, I’m finding it hard not to put everything related to the Kinect into the book instead.  Towards the end of the process, however, we’ll likely have odds and ends that do not make sense in a Beginner book that will, nevertheless, want to be said.  Those odds and ends will eventually make their way here.

In the meantime, the big news is WinRT.  Besides the fact that everyone and their neighbor is already writing their reflections on BUILD, obviating any need for me to contribute, I’ve actually already written a BUILD summary for Razorfish, which should appear on shortly.

I can’t resist commenting, all the same, that while I have javascript and C# under my belt, C++ is in my near future.  No love or time for F#, sadly.
