On April 6th, 2009, CTXNA (Central Texas XNA) was launched. We had our first meeting to kick off this exciting journey. I'm totally stoked and pumped about developing games using XNA. Mark and Tim are the leaders of this grassroots organization. I think they have what it takes to get this thing off the ground. There were a total of 5 people that showed up; there would've been more but the others had prior commitments. Nevertheless, I think CTXNA will continue growing. We were told that only good things are destined to come. Like freebies from Microsoft!
I'm really looking forward to the collaboration with other developers. I believe this will help me with my "day" job. Mark is working on the website as we speak. I'm by no means proficient at game programming, but I have a willing heart to learn. I just hope I'm not the stumbling block for the rest of the team. At any rate, I believe we all have something to add.
