Working with Kinect: The Basics

As someone who has never programmed in any C language before, this project is really making me work overtime in order to even understand the basics. In learning C# and Kinect programming, I am finding the “Jump Start” videos from Microsoft very helpful:

Moreover, there are a number of useful tutorials for those interested in programming the Kinect with C# or C++, the Kinect With Me tutorials are a saving grace due to the very relaxed nature of the site: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cdndevs/archive/2014/10/23/kinect-with-me-part-1-setting-up-your-machine.aspx

The third site I have been following in terms of tutorials and learning how to program the Kinect/program in C# is Coding 4 Fun: http://channel9.msdn.com/coding4fun/kinect/Jumping-into-Kinect-for-Windows-v2-development-series

I am struggling with the language and really wish there were more tutorials on the Kinect, but it seems for now I will have to keep following a number of beginner tutorials so as to first understand how to program in C#, then the basics of the Kinect system, and then be able to start working on my actual idea….the time is ticking.
