This week should be the last where I'm out a lot.  Sorry about that, all school stuff.  This week is FIRST robotics championships.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday are the FIRST Robotics Regional Championships.  Watch your team live at the Georgia World Congress Center on Saturday, or online at http://www.thebluealliance.com/event/2015gadu

The Microsoft Study Guide we'll be using is on the Shared Drive under TechEd > Reilly > IDT.  It's also online at http://mreilly.lanierhs.org/idt/assignments/weekof323-327/gameDevMTA.pdf

  • Mon, we'll review Sections 1.1 to 1.6, Game Design, 
  • Tues we will review Section 2, Hardware
  • Wednesday - Practice quizzes are on eClass for Objectives 1 and 2.  Take these for a "classwork" grade.  If you take it, you get a passing grade.  However, practice them for the real thing on Friday.  Then review Objective 3: Graphics.
  • Thurs review Section 4, Animation  - I messed up!!  This was already in Objective 2, I'm not smart.  However that means you have practiced it a lot on Wednesday, so Thursday is the real thing!  Take the Microsoft Game Dev quiz online.
  • After you take the quiz Thursday, start reading this article, sent to me by a pro game developer:
    • http://blog.invisionapp.com/how-to-manufacture-desire/
  • By the end of Friday's class, I want you to write a discussion post on one thing you found MOST interesting and why.  Also, what product do you think of the most for YOU when you read this?  Go to "Discussions" in eClass.

**If anyone has PDF trouble, load it to your Google Drive account, you can read through there, and you then have a copy!
