    Great post; I agree with everything you said about keeping your portfolio up to date. I wish you the best of luck, and keep your head up! ~Graham

    www.getdbook.com is back online!!

    lol - definitely going to cover XNA, but I'll mention you guys too. SlimDX is pretty cool :)
  10. After a long wait (sigh, I need to really figure out how to invent a time machine to infinitely work on side projects) I finally have my book's companion Web site back online (http://www.getdbook.com) - Sorry for the inconvenience! I am now hosting the book material (including the 2 bonus chapters) on my site so you can avoid the publisher site now. http://www.wihlidal.ca will be coming back online once I finish overhauling the content on it and bring everything up to date. On a somewhat related side note, I am playing around with the idea of writing another book. Everything from a revision of Game Engine Toolset Development for .NET 3.5 and XNA instead of MDX, all the way up to something totally different. Any ideas? What would you like to read about these days that is related to game development, C#, graphics, optimization, tools, etc.. ? Cheers! ~Graham

    Hey Drew, I'll be co-presenting a talk at AGDC this year. If you are free it'd be cool to get some pictures and coverage of my talk if you're up for it ;) https://www.cmpevents.com/GDAU08/a.asp?option=C&V=11&SessID=8090 Thanks! ~Graham

    I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

    Hey guys, thanks for the warm reception :) Ya, they took really good care of us at least. A hungry employee is a bug-inducing employee! Crunch is always fun, erm... something like that, but it's worth it when you see the product at the end of the day. Really came to life.. DrivM3Far: Haha, ya. Good 'ol UDN :) Cheers guys, ~Graham
  13. After a long long time from my last post, I'm finally back and can't wait to start posting again :) Just finished Mass Effect crunch and the game is amazing. For everyone getting it, I hope (and know) you'll enjoy it! Happy to be back, ~Graham
  14. Just thought I'd post about what I've been doing lately. I'm on my last few days with my current employer before I finally start working at BioWare! I've been waiting much too long to start there, as they wanted me May 1st but I asked for end of May so I could do some crazy knowledge transfer and wrap up activities at my current job. They were more than accommodating which made me feel a lot better about it all. May 31st is my last day at the current job and then I go on a four day fishing trip up North with my dad to serve as a nice break. Then I get back on the Sunday and start work at BioWare on the Monday (June 5th). I'm VERY excited and can't wait to start. I think I'm now on the Unreal Engine 3 tech stream there so I'll be doing some engine and tools modifications to UE3 and also creating and maintaining some new tools. I'm also working on a VERY cool game but I can't say what it is :) Still working on getting a bunch of side projects and code files released on my Web site. It's a slow process since I have to find all the good pieces and clean them up, but in the end I think everyone will have enjoyed the wait. Again, if anyone has a LinkedIn account (www.linkedin.com), my email is graham at wihlidal dot ca Book has been doing very well, and I've been getting excellent reviews. Thanks so much to everyone that picked up a copy. I hope you all enjoyed my book as much as I did writing it!
