So you have read all my stuff, gone through all my things and now you want to also know about me?

I’m a long time community developer focusing on all things XNA / Windows Phone / Windows 8 and beyond.

Technical Architect by day in the Healthcare division of a large services company while at night comes alive with endless stories and possibilities.

(I really should keep this bit up to date)
Currently working on a new version of AdRotator whilst working behinds the scenes with the MonoGame team with lots of blog posts appearing from both of these activities.
Former admin of the XNAUK group and Master Chief of ZenithMoon Studios

    I am in my first journey to XNA.. and guess what, Microsoft is kiling XNA.
    I don’t think I would like to pursue game development using C/C++ (not so much of a joy there!)

    But, currently I am get a long very well with MonoGame.
    What is the future of MonoGame, now that XNA is not having any update from MS?

      XNA and MonoGame are not officially linked, better to look at MonoGame as the community driven future for the dream that was XNA.
      So MonoGame will live as long as there is a community behind it, which will be a very long time :D

        Yeah, I guess so. I just thinking that even though MS not continuing its own XNA, MonoGame community will be able to (I hope) switch to any relevant gaming platform in the future.
