Topics I've Started

Direct3D SharpDX companion projects for Direct3D Rendering Cookbook now on GitHub

18 September 2015 - 06:46 PM

I've just uploaded my Direct3D Rendering Cookbook projects to GitHub for ease of access. These projects are written in C# using SharpDX and can be built in VS2012 / VS2013+.


I'll be updating these projects to support current SharpDX releases, however for anyone wanting to try their hand at using SharpDX they provide a good starting point as is.




C# for Xbox anyone? I'm excited!

Looks like we will finally be getting support for developing games in C# for the Xbox One (also XAML and HTML/JavaScript)! As tweeted by @joebelfiore. This along with .NET Native and SIMD support in .NET -- I'm excited for the future of C# in game development!







Direct3D Rendering Cookbook

19 March 2014 - 04:40 AM

After 8 months of hard work my first book has been published! It has been a challenging but rewarding experience and I’m really excited to finally see it published. I hope people find it as enjoyable to read as I found it to write.



The book takes you through how to use Direct3D 11.1 and 11.2 using C# and SharpDX. There are also plenty of HLSL shader examples.


The book covers a range of topics including:
  • How to set up a Direct3D application and perform real-time 3D rendering with C# and SharpDX
  • Learn techniques for debugging your Direct3D application
  • Render a 3D environment with lights, models, and materials
  • Explore character animation using bones and vertex skinning
  • Create additional surface detail using tessellation with displacement mapping and displacement decals
  • Implement image post-processing tasks within compute shaders
  • Use real-time deferred rendering techniques to implement improved shading for lighting and shadows
  • Learn to program the graphics pipeline with shaders using HLSL and Shader Model 5

For more information you can take a look at the book at one of the following links, or ask me anything here.
