Simax Driving Simulator, Ejercicio formativo elemental

Muy buenas,

este post lo escribo en español porque el nuevo video de Simax también está en castellano, así que ná...

En el siguiente link:

Tenéis el último video del proyecto simax, uno de los ejercicios formativos disponibles en el simulador, destinado a la práctica de las maniobras más básicas necesarias para el manejo de un turismo con transmisión manual, en este caso un Porsche 911... (no hubiera estado mal aprender a conducir con este coche, en lugar del Ibiza que tenían en mi autoescuela... ;)

Espero guste !

Un saludo,

Microsoft CodeCamp. June 2007. El Rocío, Huelva

Hi there !

It´s been long ago since the last time I wrote a post. I´ve been really busy with the Simax project and the recent events. I haven´t visited the MSDN forums much neither, but I hope to start getting more time for my own since now.

This last weekend I had the chance to go to El Rocio (Huelva, Spain), where took place the Microsoft Codecamp. It´s a wonderful place with really good weather and food, and a must for any tourist visiting the south of Spain.

I personally enjoyed a lot my time there, and must thank Microsoft´s people (Jose, Alfonso, Beatriz, Maribel, Ethel, ...) for all the good work done there. It was GREAT !

We were accomodated in this wonderful bungalow camping:

and the agenda included lots of interesting sessions:

In the morning, I gave an introduction to XNA development, followed by a more technical XNA session by Javier Canton (, who showed some very interesting visual effects, using XNA post-production shaders. Good work Javier!.

Later on, I presented the Simax Project and made a short demo showing the features of the driving simulator:

It would be too long to talk about every other session, but I must include a special mention to "El diván de Monica", really fun and instructive, in which Miguel Egea (, Unai Zorrilla ( and Alejandro Mezcua ( were interviewed by Monica, and talked about their great experience in the industry, giving very good advices to all of us.

Of course, I cannot finish this post without talking about the last chart of the first day: "El rock ha muerto" (Rock is dead), by Chema Alonso ( and Ricardo Varela ( What can I say... Just take a look by yourself:

This has been, with no doubt, the funniest session I´ve ever seen. And was instructive too !!

Finally, I also have to thank Daniel Romano, Carlos Ibarra and Fernando Lacunza for their help with the shipment to the CodeCamp. It was hard, but you made it... Thanks !!

Thanks a lot to everyone !!!!!
