Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

The XNA Developer Connection (XDC) is looking for software engineers with a strong interest in game technologies who are passionate about helping the world's leading game developers with tough development issues. Engineers in this position will support internal and external game developers directly, debug and analyze game development problems and develop responsive solutions, as well as write sample code and technical whitepapers.

Qualifications include excellent communication skills, strong analytical skills, 3 years of windows or game programming experience in C/C++, and a passion for gaming.


Now I have to admit, I'm a little curious why they would require C/C++ experience in an XNA support position, when XNA supports neither?  Funny...

The whole GROUP is called the XNA group. DirectX is a product of that group as is the other product which is 'XNA Game studio' or 'XNA Framework'....

You must have been asleep when I put that slide up when I came out to Minnesota!!!! AND you saw it in Maryland too....

XNA itself is just a brand... of course Microsoft don't really care to actually admit they are confusing everyone with this message and they leave it to us MVPs to explain it twice a week.

XDC is a C++/native DX job.

Damn it! I come here to tip you one by referring to XNA as a product when it's a brand. And lookie here, Andy beat me to it :P.

Before I read Zmans post I was going to say the C++ creeped in there because they copied it form another posting.
