Welcome to the wonderful world of Rob Miles—a world of bad jokes, puns, and programming. In this book, I’m going to give you an introduction to the C# programming language and show you how to use C# to create XNA games. If you have programmed before, I’d be grateful if you’d still read all the text. It’s worth it just for the jokes, and you may actually learn something as you’re laughing.
