Which audience Microsoft XNA is intended for?
Posted on 2011-05-07
I have been doing lot of Google searches for information about Microsoft XNA, and found lot of interesting facts about it, however none of them really says anything about the audience for which XNA is intended.
The closest answer I was able to find is that XNA facilitates game development for both hobbyists and professionals. Nothing is said about the level of programming required though
I find the "programming background is useful but not essential" claim for XNA to be too good to be true. Hence I am assuming that the XNA like any programming tool is meant for developers.
My exact question is what level of programming is needed to get into XNA? like any type of game programming do you have to be an experienced programmer/developer to get into XNA ?
Ultimately I am trying to research and determine if XNA is meant for me given my current level of programming.
Here are some background information about my programming skills. I have been learning C# for about a year or so. I am good with the basics (variables, loops, methods...etc) and quite adept in object oriented programming (Classes, structures, enumeration, encapsulation , inheritance, polymorphism..etc)
