Getting started with the Kinect for Windows SDK quickly with the Kinect Quickstarts
- Posted: Jun 17, 2011 at 9:30AM
The Kinect for Windows SDK Quickstarts are short, 6 to 17 minute, video and text based tutorials to help you get into Kinect coding quickly (funny that). Each one is focused on a specific area, from initially getting the SDK and setting up your development environment to digging in and writing feature specific code. If you like your quickstart in an offline mode, or just want the slide decks and source, please download the Kinect for Windows SDK Quickstarts samples and slides.
