My most common tip is to start with something simple like "DirectX SDK Tutorial07" since a clean start will get you faster to the advanced features seen in bigger examples.

I hope it is okay to post a link to my own blog, as long as it has useful content? 

 

I've been working on www.xnafan.net for a couple of years, and am open for suggestions for tutorials you would like to see :).

 

Kind regards - Jakob

I'll auto-quote myself for some usefull liks (tutorial and materials)
 

First, never forgot MSDN library, it will be your best friend: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee663274.aspx
 
 
The following covers the basis of the API, plus some intermediate and advanced topics (Microsoft SDK and samples):
 
- Braynzarsoft tutorials: http://www.braynzarsoft.net/index.php?p=DX11Lessons
 
- Rastertek tutorials (they are not the state of art at code and they use D3DX, but they cover many basic techniques and they are pretty easy to follow) http://www.rastertek.com/tutindex.html
 
- "Legacy and old" Microsoft DirectX SDK, covers DirectX9/10/11. Please note that libraries such the D3DX series and DXUT are no longer supported since Windows 8 SDK. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6812
 
- "Modern" (no more D3DX and DXUT) Microsoft DirectX samples: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/chuckw/archive/2013/09/20/directx-sdk-samples-catalog.aspx
 
 
The following are more advanced and specific techniques: 
 
- AMD Radeon SDK: http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/graphics-development/graphics-development-sdks/amd-radeon-sdk/
 
- NVIDIA "legacy and old" SDK 11: https://developer.nvidia.com/dx11-samples
 
- NVIDIA "legacy and old" SDK 10 (convert from DirectX10 to DirectX11 is pretty easy): http://developer.download.nvidia.com/SDK/10.5/direct3d/samples.html
 
- NVIDIA "modern" DirectX SDK: https://developer.nvidia.com/gameworks-directx-samples
 
- Intel Visual Computing Source Samples: https://software.intel.com/en-us/vcsource/samples
 
 
Some useful replacement for D3DX and the old DXUT by Chuck Walbourn - MST:
 
https://directxmesh.codeplex.com/ for mesh data processing and optimization (new!)
https://directxtex.codeplex.com/ for texture processing.
https://directxtk.codeplex.com/ for everything else covered in D3DX, plus an audio API,sprite batch, effects management, simple math, models and more...
https://dxut.codeplex.com/ replace the old DXUT library.
https://fx11.codeplex.com/ replace the old effects library.
 
 
Other advanced, cool & useful stuff:
https://hieroglyph3.codeplex.com/ an entire DX11 framwork with cool stufs and Kinect by Jason Zink
https://mjp.codeplex.com/ MJP's stuffs like specular AA, bokeh and more..
https://tiledresources.codeplex.com/ Microsoft DirectX 11.2 Tiled Resources demo.
http://www.iryoku.com/ Jorge Jimenez works
 
 
GPGPU Pro series source code and samples from CRC Press (a good number of them are for DirectX11):
http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781568814728
http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781568817187
http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439887820
http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781466567436
