George Clingerman

George is relatively new to the development scene. He took a short course in BASIC on Apple IIgs in high school and did not re-visit the computer world again until his freshman year of college in 1996. A lot had changed.

George managed to catch up (some) and graduated with a math/computer science major in 2000. He has worked as a software developer ever since and continues to refine his development skills and play catch up with all these "old school" developers.

Currently, George is a business developer by day working with Visual Basic, ASP.NET, and SQL building Windows Forms and Web software for the construction industry.

At night, George likes to dabble with game development. With the release of XNA Game Studio Express, this hobby has become less frustration and changing the colors of triangles and more "Wow! Did you make that Dad?"

George runs an XNA community site,, where he creates tutorials for beginning 2D game development with XNA Game Studio Express and tries to help out the best he can in the MSDN forums for XNA. For this and other contributions to the XNA community, George was awarded a Microsoft MVP award for XNA.

George feels a bit weird about writing about himself but his lovely wife and three wonderful sons have assured him that he did ok.
