An Archived Managed World This blog has moved to http://www.managed-world.com/blog

I wanted to let you all know that I have started up a website on gamedev called Managed World. That will be the main hosting place for my game development articles. Why have I done this? Well, the experience that I've received over the last year has led to me to believe that while dotText works wonderfully as a blogging engine, and as somewhere to post a couple of articles here or there, it doesn't suit my needs very well when it comes to a game development site.

I will still be doing regular blogging here for sure, it's just that any current and/or future game development articles will reside over on Managed World. I'm hoping to make Managed World a good place to go if you are wanting to learn about game development and architecture in .NET (starting with C# and Managed DirectX articles (and maybe I will move on to VB articles and/or OpenGL articles)). I'm hoping that this can be one of the resources to go to for learning game development with .NET.

I would quickly like to thank Chris Sells for a comment he made to me on the phone the other day. I was complaining about the lack of content on the DirectX Developer Center, and Managed DirectX in general, and he said something along the lines of “well, perhaps an enterprising 3rd party should step up the plate and fill in the void”. I've never been a Type-A person, but perhaps it is time to get up off my lazy butt and do something about it.

I hope you will see a lot of interesting things from Managed World in the future. Now, however, I need to crank out my other commitments so I can have the time to get Managed World up off the ground. Stay tuned for more!

Ciao!

Any chance of RSS feeds for Managed World? Make it easy to know when an article is publiched, that kind of thing.

Looking forward to the content.

Dave, there certainly will be an RSS feed. I'm an RSS junkie, there's no way that I would not put one up :). There won't be comments on the post, so it will be more one-way communication than a blog, but at least people will easily be able to stay up to date.

The only bummer is that I'm a cheap skate so the website now is all html (not even ASP). So, posting new posts and such will be done through a WinForms application that I'm writing now. It will automatically track and generate the home page and the RSS feed. Not as convenient as ASP, but enough to keep it running until I settle in with some proper hosting.

Thanks!

Thanks Rich! It was my first stab at actually designing a site. I can't say that the design is all mine ;). You know: good artists copy, great artists steal :).
