Home from Meltdown
Friday, July 30, 2004 | Permalink

I'm back home again after attending Meltdown for a few days. It's the first event of this kind I've attended, so it was pretty cool. Got to meet some real developers and see a couple of unreleased titles. Not that many people attending though, and during the speech sessions I attended the room wasn't even filled anywhere close to half. Overall pretty cool and a lot of fun though.

Meltdown is Microsoft's developer event.

Looks like a cool event to me. Btw. How do you think about Microsoft's XNA?

I guess it could be a cool thing, but I don't know enough about it. I get the impression that it's more or less just a bigger version of D3DX.

XNA and D3D will likely merge into WGF for Longhorn (guess someone was not following to well at Meltdown )

Does this WGF also allow the use of OpenGL? Or are we all forced to use D3D?
