MSDN Magazine Online Kinect column

This month, MSDN Magazine started a new column on the online content devoted to Kinect. And I am authoring it! Check out the first article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/jj159883.aspx

It covers the very basics of developing applications that use Kinect for Windows. I explain the capabilities of Kinect, explain how to get one and the differences between Kinect for Xbox & Windows and then demo creating a WPF application that draws the skeleton of the user on the screen. And all without having to write a single line of code! If that’s not lowering the bar, I don’t know what is!

So check it out, leave some comments and if you are interested, keep coming back. The first few articles are targeting beginners to level the playing field a bit. Then we will be getting into more and more advanced uses and capabilities as well as exploring other domains (robotics, etc). Hope you enjoy it!
