BieberSmash and Other Windows Phone 7 Games

People love games and they take their phones everywhere, making phone gaming a winning combo. Watch Microsoft Developer Evangelist Joey deVilla walk you through the building of simple 2D game for Windows Phone 7 in which you poke Justin Bieber, from “File -> New” up to the point where you have pop’s most annoying star under your thumb. He’ll talk about the basic principles of 2D game development, from sprite movement and animation of collision detection, to working with touch, show you the XNA game framework and get you started on the road to videogame development for the phone. It’ll be entertaining, irreverent and also your chance to try out a Windows Phone 7 device, up close and personal.


Joey contributes to Microsoft's Canadian Developer Connection blog and maintains two personal blogs: his technical blog Global Nerdy and his "life, the universe and everything" blog, The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century. He's very active in the Toronto tech community, often either hosting or helping out at some event. He started Coffee and Code, a weekly gathering where developers gather at café to work and share ideas over coffee, and he hosts the Toronto chapter. You'll rarely see him without his accordion, and he likes to open his presentations with a rock or pop tune on his trademark instrument.
