I think you can find one at gametutorials.com, but it'd be in opengl. Check out the "resource" section in the FAQ for a full list of dx based sites that may have what you're looking for.

This site has been mentioned before, but it is where I figured out how to do simple Brute Force Terrain Generation. I was doing it with Managed DX9 and C# though so I had to port a lot of the code he used (he uses C++). If you need help doing it w/ C# ill post my code on how it's done that way.

Or check out:

That one should be really helpful.
