Why do I love launching sites in the same month as CodeStock? Is it the draw to a wide audience and a perfect place to announce new, or do I just enjoy pain and no sleep to kick off summer?
Last year it was DragonTee, a t-shirt site for my then girlfriend and now wife Cicelie (nothing says commitment like building a website!). This year it’s GameMarx, a site dedicated to Xbox Live Indie Game coverage.
We taking a slightly different approach than the normal game review site, and will cover some XNA development as well. Nothing deep, we are really out to be a gateway site leading current developers to XNA, and pick up some new developers along the way (I think game programming is a great way to get kids involved in computers for more than just FaceBook).
Figuring out the technology behind this project has been crazy, and when things settle down I will blog how we tackled it. How many projects do you get to not only write software for a teleprompter, but build the teleprompter as well!? In the mean time, if you see me at CodeStock and want to ask some questions I’ll be glad to share!
(Going to do a shameless plug for CodeStock now) CodeStock 2010 is June 25 & 26, in Knoxville, TN, with sessions for developers, IT pros, and technology entrepreneurs. We also have one of the best open spaces conferences running along side the breakout sessions (yes I’m the event organizer and might be a little biased, but they really are great!). We having some fun this year with live podcasts and panel discussions, so come out and join us!
