This week's theme, if you haven't guessed yet, is going to be a "We shipped it!" or "We're at v1, baby" or a "No Beta SDK's For You!" or "Lets Chat v1" week.
Today we're going to highlight a cool series by Dan Fernandez that will get going with Kinect for Windows SDK Development.
And remember if you're new to .Net development and would like to get up to speed on C# or VB.Net, you'll want to check out, C# Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners and/or Visual Basic Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners
Kinect for Windows Quickstart Series
This series includes everything you need to get started building applications using the Kinect for Windows SDK. You'll learn how to setup and configure the Kinect SDK using Visual Studio Express, how the Kinect color and depth camera work and how to use skeletal tracking to track joint positions in your application. You'll also learn how to use sound source localization to locate the direction of sound, how to use the Kinect to record audio, and how to use speech recognition to control your application via voice commands.
