I am a senior in high school and part of our English class we have to do a "Senior Project" this is a two part project that takes most of the year, one part is a paper about a question and the second part is some project relating to your paper. My paper is about programming and my project is to write a program, part of the paper is to interview two different people and part of the project is to have a mentor help you along the way. I have been programming in C++ command prompt work for over a year and have recently moved to directx 9.0. I am using http://www.directxtutorial.com/ as my reference and i was wondering if there was anyone in the bay area that would like to be my mentor or any guidelines would really help. Emailing me would be the best way: halfpint1170@gmail.com if you have any questions you can respond to this post.

I haven't really looked at directxtutorial.com myself, but it seems to have some less than stellar advice based on what other people have said here.

You might want to take a look at my book The Direct3D Graphics Pipeline and see if that helps clarify things for you.

I was wondering why the directx code he used was so easy lol. Ill take a look at your website Richard but finding a mentor is more important as of right now since i was supposed to already have found one, instead i got sidetracked with programming and playing games that i forgot to try and find one. I live in the bay area but might be willing to drive some what far distances if someone lives in like Sacramento or something. Anyway i am still trying to email someone who i know is in my area and programs, he might know directx but with my luck he probably knows java or something...

Also a programming ventrilo server would be really nice for help, im sure people would use it or at least i would if people where online. Just a suggestion.
