The Virus Game, for Microsoft and the University of Bradford, was finished and has become an integral part of the AI for Games course at the University. The Virus Game is a tile based board game and has been produced in both a desktop and a bulk game server versions.
Black Marble's annual Tech Update for IT managers and Developer took place today. In the developer segment we reprised Chris A's & Don Box's Lap around Longhorn for the local audience. It was very well received, see you at next years update
Richard and I attended the event Developing Software for the future Microsoft Platform, where we saw Chris Anderson & Don Box's Lap Around Longhorn, it was very entertaining. A series of very interesting demonstrations of WinFS showed how powerful a file system could be. Bill Gates gave the closing session, which provided an interesting insight into the industry.
This was followed by the London Bloggers dinner at Masala Zone with Chris An & Don Box. However, we had to leave early - to catch our train back to the frozen north - not as a reflection on the food & company, which were both excellent.
Well this is the first posting to our new BM-Bloggers site. What is BM-Bloggers, it is a blog shared by the all the developers of Black Marble to comment on the development world as they see it. Hope you find it if interest.
