On 22 of February, Microsoft asked me to give a small talk about games development on the Windows Phone 7 platform, and more specifically about XNA development and my experience with the WP7 Marketplace. It was fun and quite a few people showed up, to listen and to be rewarded with pizza and beer in the end. The MonsterUp trailer video was also shown at the end of the talk:) After the Geneva talk last week I am in Zurich today, invited by Microsoft again, giving a similar talk about XNA game development to a bunch of Game Design students at the University of Zurich.

The slides for both talks were published in previous posts. (1)(2)
