Silverlight and the Farseer Physics Engine

by Mike Hodnick

Presentation Materials

In this code and demo-heavy session, you will learn how to use the Farseer Physics engine with Silverlight to create dynamic and unique scenes in a browser. We'll wire up the Farseer engine to the UI, handle collisions, join physics bodies together, and control parameters such as gravity and friction. Presenting data and offering a user interface with physics-like qualities is becoming commonplace in cutting edge applications, and the Farseer engine with Silverlight is one way to deliver that experience.
