Kodu Has Moved


Hi, I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Stephen Coy (scoy). I’m one of the original Kodu developers and have been working on Kodu since the project was started 14 years ago in Microsoft Research. For the last several years I’ve been the only person working on Kodu full time. Recently, I left Microsoft. I didn’t want Kodu to just disappear when I left so before leaving I was able to shepherd Kodu through the process of being released as open source. Microsoft also kindly allowed me to take over the community database and web site. My plan is to continue to support Kodu for years to come. Joining me will be Chris Phillips. Chris worked with me at Microsoft and has basically done all the work on the web site and community for the last decade.
